Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura as Architects

Metaphorically, the project is intended to be a symbol on the Yuyuantan park, a tall mountain broken by flowing rivers. With a skin of ventilated ceramic panels and top to bottom “rivers” of curtain wall, the design attempts to reduce the effects of the high density blocks. The facades are articulated according to a numerical system of proportions and harmony where every part is related to the whole. The glass curtain wall protruding into the sky hides the jacuzzis from where the residents enjoy a sense of luxury, unique in west Beijing. The ground floor of the three “mountains” features spacious high-ceilings with elegant lobbies and halls where guests and residents can meet in comfortable living rooms. White marble wraps the entrance spaces. Materials such as red ceramic tile, stainless steel, brass, glass, marble and wood are combined in a harmonious interplay to provide variations in this unique luxury living experience.
