In terms of overall planning and layout, the main space texture of the project is groups of square courtyards. Each group has a garden to ensure the needs of the elderly. The overall space atmosphere is suitable between opening and enclosure, forming a spatial hierarchy system, which provides reference for the ideal model of urban residential area in the future.

On the basis of the courtyard texture, the scheme creates a natural courtyard experience. The architectural image of the group adopts different facades according to the different atmosphere inside and outside the courtyard. The outward side emphasizes the red heavy sense for the urban street, and the inward pays attention to the white livability of the courtyard landscape.

UCA team tries to create a building image which combines Chinese traditional and modern aesthetics. In order to handle the overall harmony and diversity of multiple building images of the project, the scheme combines the urban image display and the differentiation of buildings. Under the theme of image, the different styles are designed to form the beauty of the overall area.

The experience center is based on the overall elegant and modern image with certain symbolic and quality sense, and is built with the Chinese roof as the prototype, forming a flexible form with deep eaves. The combination of brick and copper is selected to show the beauty of the buildings. The material texture and color changes brought by time will gradually appear in the coming decades.

The overall charm of the building is based on the tone and composition of Chinese architecture, which is implicit and classic. In order to obtain a sense of time with more delicate expression, brick is showing implicit, introverted and delicate temperament, while copper is expressed as folding, showing a decisive, sharp and brilliant character.
