Luxe Lakes New Town Residential Towers, Parcel 9

Luxe Lakes New Town Residential Towers, Parcel 9
Sichuan, China

The design of new residential communities at Luxe Lakes New Town presents a unique opportunity to design new communities in harmony with nature.  Our conceptual design for Parcel 9 of the Master Plan creates a landmark ensemble of energy-efficient towers, lower bar buildings and villas. 


Innovative “Tropical Towers”

The iconic towers incorporate optimal sustainable strategies that respond to the tropical climate.  The design creates a vertical movement of “sky garden” units that minimize the need for heating and air conditioning, while maximizing views to the outstanding natural surroundings.   Central to the innovative design of the 30-floor towers are their “perforations”—openings through the building that allow breezes to blow freely over sky gardens.  Sustainable elements also include the use of photovoltaic panels on the roof, and geothermal heating/cooling. 


Harmony with Nature

The tower facades are animated by a dynamic sense of movement—a “weaving” character of projected and recessed elements to provide a strong identity for the buildings.  The “in-and-out” pieces form a distinctive rhythm of solids and voids,  light and shadow, that serves to enrich and modulate the large scale of the towers.  The low-rise bar building and villas on the Parcel 9 site incorporate the same “weaving” character comparable to the towers, but with a more sculptural treatment.  Public amenities including retail, restaurant, function rooms, and a clubhouse has been closely integrated with the towers on the waterfront.  The landscape design enhances the quality of residential living on a lake and lagoon, by shaping a series of islands separated by waterways.
