Design takes the full integration of the reflections on the urban historical heritage and natural ecology, with nature as the boundary, the courtyard wraps around the building,contributing to a private and tranquil world of its own in the modern loud “concrete jungle”.With the modeling language inspired by the egrets flying through the canal, the design deliberately outlines the building with white curves and cascading eaves. Seen from the air, this project looks like a kind of white ripple, spreading from the land and integrating with the ripples in the water.
