NSIAP completes new community masterplan in Foshan district 

The land on which this master plan stands was originally subdivided for suburban villa lots. The land faces on to a large river and the brief was to design large villas at the edge of the river, with a secondary school located close to it on its southern edge. The Remnant piece of land was to contain mainly high density housing and office with shops and small anchors of medium sized retail mixed with the housing.

The concept was to subdivide the remaining land into low-rise four storey edges, consisting of shops on the base and three storey townhouses above them. A series of hard landscaped squares was formed, which join the various blocks at street level or the second storey. The higher density slab blocks are located in the centre of the courtyard blocks are seen as a series of receding slabs read against the four storey street walls. The underneath of the tall blocks are designed as three storey landscape gardens as they sit in the middle of the common courtyards.

A long thin piece of land on the east of the river consists of seven storey housing with shops on the ground floor. The shops face an existing road to the south, and an internal canal to the north which will be a new commercial canal walk for a wide mixture of shops – almost all street levels are used for the public realm in contrast to the private villas north of the site. Two hotels are planned on the eastern and western sides of the site as nodes in the long street. Hotels in Guangzhou have dim sum restaurants, and act as busy nodes during breakfast and weekends, with customers constantly coming in and out in the early morning and evening.
