Located in Haikou City, Hainan Province, China, the project aims to create a creative and comfortable residential area for people. The design team uses deconstruction language rather than traditional way to connect the vision of the future life with site context, to rebuild a spiritual landscape.

The project uses “différance” as the core concept of deconstructionism to promote the holistic design and respond to the building. “Différance”, a philosophy concept, was put forward by Jacques Derrida. In terms of landscape architecture, it indicates that the aim of landscape design could not be understood instantly unless that related elements and core concepts were used to help achieve the final effect.

The vision of the future life includes four themes: modern art, freedom, nature, and purity. The design closely connectes architecture and landscape through the integration of three “intermediary” concepts of emotional transmission, scene interpretation, and atmosphere creation and applies modern destruction design techniques. The integration of land art and waterscape enriches the hierarchy of space and activates the site.

The site includes five functional spaces: interface landscape area, entry space, outdoor seating space, water yard and drop-off area. Moreover, they use shadows and plants to create natural atmosphere. The entire design not only emphasizes the optimal balance between landscape and emotion, but also created an outstanding living residential landscape design.
