Green Shore Residence Phase II

December 14, 2021

This waterfront residential project sits at the tip of Luoxi Island in Panyu, Guangzhou, bordered on three sides by the Pearl River stream. It consists of eight towers of varying heights that are arranged in pairs, which open up into wide viewing corridors between them. This architecture is a response to the relationship between the island and city where it resides—by rotating the four towers, the floor-to-ceiling glass windows open a 270-degree panoramic river view for most units while keeping Guangzhou’s city centre in sight. This envelope helps bring light inside the spaces, achieving healthy and energy-efficient interiors.

Because the towers are arranged in pairs, each of them shares a common entrance lobby with a distinctive stilt design. This semi-open lobby houses children’s playgrounds, fitness facilities and green spaces, creating a communal area that lets in the breeze but keeps out the rain. The entrance area is also connected to a sunken garden that doubles as a light well, bringing fresh air and sunlight into the underground car park.
