Two ecological ‘water axes’ form the backbone of Tangyue’s natural hills that span from the Kylin Lake in the North to the Qi Dong reservoir in the South. These 'water axes' were introduced to the site by directing the existing flow of water to the agricultural lands on which Tangyue Water Village is situated, from which the concept of 'living on a lake' was developed. This concept provided the opportunity to integrate Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) solutions into the luxury villa development. Water from the reservoir was channelled to the site to create a large lakeside environment into which bridges and pathways, buildings and courtyards merged seamlessly. Pavilions overlooking the lake and surrounding landscape complete the picture of tranquillity for this water village. All parking are directed to the basement to free up the ground level for pedestrians.
