Modern Interpretation of Siheyuan
Nestled amidst a green golf course in Guangzhou, Southern China, the Lake Dragon is a 15,000-square-foot house. This spectacular house is minimal in the extreme but nevertheless has a soothing, almost Zen-like feel. Standout features include an outdoor pool, whose depths can be viewed from the basement, double-height glass “walls”, a water garden and huge walk-in wardrobe. By making use of a sound water system, the project provides a snug and pleasant living environment throughout the seasons.
The central courtyard readily reminds of a popular architectural feature in traditional Chinese compound houses, otherwise known as ‘siheyuan’.
