The Lake Dragon, Guangzhou
November 13, 2012 - Guangdong
Leading Hong Kong developer Sun Hung Kai has launched an expansive new project in Guangzhou called The Lake Dragon.
The development is nestled within Jiulonghu National Forest and surrounded by a 27-hole Jiulonghu Golf Course.
The first phase occupies 240,000 sqm and includes 243 villas ranging from 350 to 875 sq m. A 100,000 sq m town is also being built, complete with a hotel, restaurants, bars and an amusement park.
Bryant Lu, vice Chairman of Ronald Lu & Partners comments on the challenge of designing villas to maximise the view while maintaining privacy.
"We want every owner to enjoy an open view, so we designed large spaces and ceiling-to-floor windows and also spent a lot of time adjusting the height of the villas to prevent residents from stepping out and seeing someone else's kitchen."
The modern villas open into a square garden - a modern revision of the classic szu-ho-yuan - and also include a basement and garage.
