Villas, Taiyan (Shanxi province, China)
We were asked to design 400 villas in ten different varieties and an apartment building, each with its own character and volume. The clients wish was to give the designs a western look, but with influences from Chinese culture. We achieved this through workshops, through exploring and studying the old buildings in villages and cities nearby, but also by experiencing the people, listening to the music, having diners together with the Chinese, walks in nature, or visits to The Forbidden City and The Great Wall.
