Sino-German Ecopark locates in Qingdao at the coast of the Yellow Sea, it is going to be a new city district which integrates office and residence functions and mainly power-supplied by renewable energies.
The project site has a regular shape, but the topography is complex. It locates at the back side of the mountain and has a large internal elevation. There exists a gulch from southwest to northeast. It is at the gateway of C2 group of Sino-German Ecopark, and close to the German Center.
Maximizing conservation and utilization of the original landscape vegetation, by thorough analysis of vertical planning, separation of pedestrian and vehicles, urban master planning, aims at maximally improving the pedestrian environment inside the community and determining the mode of transportation in the car-free community.
Coordinating with the neighboring landscape environment and meets the requirement of the overall architecture form control in the area, a deterministic distribution of architectural layout in this area is formed. It provides the spacious landscape courtyard and the simultaneous integration with the complete spatial form of Sino-German Ecopark.
This project is an open neighborhood block, the central landscape belt connects the city green axis and the city park, forming a landscape corridor. The building land occupation is reduced as much as possible in the design for the allotted large landscape green space, to increase the greening rate and the residential quality.
Community public service functionalities are set up in the east side of the central sunken landscape, and together with the community center built in Phase 1, it provides residents of the passive house community as well as residents from neighboring communities with various public activity sites.
