VILLA in Xitang Ancient Town by Nature Times Art Design Co., Ltd.


The project is located in an ancient water town in Jiangnan Region (Southern China), embracing local characteristic cultural context. Accompanied by the Naera Hotel and an organic ecological village, and based on the rich culture and multiple commercial operations on the site, it creates a diversified living scene and vacation experience that conform to the contemporary trend, and establishes an aesthetic dialogue among living space, art, landscape and nature.

The buildings around the site adopt the spatial pattern of "vertical courtyard". In response to these main buildings, the project outlines a three-dimensional space with Jiangnan features, which balances modern and ancient elements and meets both living and socializing needs. The "emptiness" between buildings is settled through gardening techniques. Surrounded by plants, irregularly-cut stones pave a winding pathway at the outdoor area, echoing the pavilion and building on the site.
