Text description provided by the architects. Changxing Riverside Village is a housing development consisting of terraced and semi-detached houses with a total site area of 13.6 hectares. The first half of the project is completed, whereas the rest is under construction. The planning concept was inspired by the existing water networks of the site resulting in a canal system similar to the traditional riverside town of the region.

The showroom and community service house, placed next to the main entrance of the housing area as well as at the end of main canal, is in a clear contrast to the extremely rectangular and box-like housing forms. What is more, this building is embedded in a man-made slope, leading to the choreography of space in terms of “promenade architecturale” both inside and outside the building.
