China Resources Oak Tree Bay Community

Location:Beijing, China
Services: Landscape

For this 2013 China Resources project in Beijing, iPlace provided concept, schematic and design development services for the final residential site of a multi-parcel, mixed use development. Work focused on two tasks. The first was to reshape an existing park and sales center to be more effective for the marketing of the final phase. This park was transformed from an open, campus-like lawn, into a richly planted garden, tailored to buyers, and filled with smaller-scaled design elements. An existing bell tower and arcade were re-integrated into this park scheme.

The second task was to create a new landscape for the proposed residential tower area. This design proposes a garden spine to connect the reshaped park with the central clubhouse of the new residential area. The design then established a “quadrant” of four distinct gardens among the high-rises.
