Adjoin Garden, with an ancient architectural illusion, is located in the heart of Nanshan District, Shenzhen. Surrounded by modern high-rise buildings, it is situated on a multifunctional plaza integrating office, commerce, and leisure functions. The architectural part is a historic Qing Dynasty building with rich cultural meaning. The original facade and interior decoration of the building were preserved and moved to the city center, becoming a multifunctional site for various cultural activities.
毗鄰花園，具有古老的建築幻覺，位於深圳市南山區的中心。 它被現代高層建築包圍，坐落在一個集辦公，商務和休閒功能於一體的多功能廣場上。 建築部分是具有豐富文化意義的清代歷史建築。 保留了建築物的原始外觀和室內裝飾並將其移至市中心，成為進行各種文化活動的多功能場所。
The bricks, tiles, stones, and woods of the ancient buildings were disassembled and restored as they were, covering an area of about 258 square meters. This building has a brick and wood structure, featuring cornice cliffs, blue bricks, black tiles, and horse-head walls.
When designing the landscape, we have to consider the differences in the atmosphere between the ancient buildings and the modern commercial environment; moreover, the design should also echo the functions of the building, creating a corresponding landscape form and space. Doing so can be challenging since there is sharp contrast between the ancient building and the towering modern high-rises.
在設計景觀時，我們必須考慮古代建築與現代商業環境之間的氛圍差異； 此外，設計還應呼應建築物的功能，創建相應的景觀形式和空間。 這樣做可能具有挑戰性，因為古老建築與高聳的現代高層建築之間形成鮮明對比。
The designer carefully studied the form of ripples and displayed the curvature in the courtyard by utilizing different landscape materials. At the same time the design embodies the divergence of culture, forming a layered, spreading, and transitional landscape effect, balancing the atmospheric difference between ancient buildings and modern commercial environments.
Based on the characteristics of the architecture and the site, the space was reorganized and applied the rippling form on to the landscape, creating a gradual spatial effect.
In combination with the concept of a display platform, the landscape design with corresponding platform areas will accentuate the sense of ritual in the courtyard space. Due to the lack of windows around the ancient buildings for direct viewing from the interior, the setting of the platform provides an activity area for the outside landscape, allowing users to enjoy the courtyard space.
The straight line and simple design emphasize the sense of ritual at the main entrance of the building. The ground is embedded with yellow-rust stone slab with lychee surface textures, serving as a transition from the plaza to the ancient building and echoing with the surrounding stones of the courtyard. The Fujian tea tree hedge, at each corner of the main entrance, creates a fresh and open landscape atmosphere. The north and south sides of the entrance exhibit a completely different atmosphere. The south side is a space with the hard pavement; the north side has a water feature, which breaks the linearity of the building entrance.
直線和簡單的設計強調了建築物正門的儀式感。 地面上嵌入了帶有荔枝表面紋理的黃銹石板，是從廣場到古建築的過渡，並與周圍的庭院石相呼應。 福建茶樹籬在大門的每個角落，營造出清新開放的景觀氛圍。 入口的南北兩側呈現出完全不同的氣氛。 南側是舖有堅硬路面的空間。 北側具有水特徵，這破壞了建築物入口的線性。
The outer space is designed with less vegetation to create an open view. The stone walls enrich the visual depth of the landscape, and the use of yellow rust stones fortify the sense of volume and sculptural feel of the stone walls.
Since the west door of the ancient building is more private than the other side doors, the landscape design visually extends the outdoor space, creating a sense of depth.
Since the pedestrian path is relatively narrow, the surrounding landscape of the ancient building will serve to offset the path that enters from the north . At the intersection, pedestrians will enter the design area through elevators and stairs. To avoid people looking directly at the entrance of the ancient building, which will lose a sense of mystery and curiosity, the vegetation is used to increase the depth of the space, creating a secluded and quiet atmosphere.
由於人行道相對狹窄，因此古建築的周圍景觀將抵消從北方進入的路徑。 在十字路口，行人將通過電梯和樓梯進入設計區域。 為了避免人們直接注視著古老建築的入口，這將失去神秘感和好奇心，植被被用來增加空間的深度，營造出幽靜的氛圍。
Hedges will cover the entrance and the paved yellow-rust stone slabs will make the landscape appear more natural. Besides, it also elongates the pedestrian path which makes the route of people entering the building more winding, adding a sense of privacy.
The designer treats the ancient buildings as cultural exhibits in the modern city, with the landscape providing a display platform. A variety of elements are used to set off and echo them, weakening the disconnection between the ancient buildings and the commercial environment. The natural elements in the landscape are used to reconcile the atmosphere difference between the ancient buildings and the commercial environment. The landscape and the architecture echo and merge, creating a spiritual oasis of nature and culture for people in the modern city.
設計師將古代建築視為現代城市的文化展覽，而景觀則提供了展示平台。 各種元素被用來引發和呼應它們，從而削弱了古建築與商業環境之間的脫節。 景觀中的自然元素用於調和古建築與商業環境之間的氣氛差異。 景觀和建築呼應並融合，為現代城市的人們營造了自然和文化的精神綠洲。
