ABSTRACT Contemporary housing design in China usually follows a preoccupied real estate formula to limit risk in the market. As a result, it is hard to find opportunities and space for architects to develop new housing typologies in such market-oriented reality. The project focuses on how to contextualize architecture with the existing geographical condition and to recall the experience of traditional Chinese gardens in the making of modern living space.
