This project is located at the core of Meilong Town in Minhang District, Shanghai, and neighbors a high-end residential area, Shanghai South Train Station, and the Minhang University Complex. Based on the concept of a leaf, the project is designed to optimize a natural, organic flow amongst the various environments, with simple, clear site organization. As a revitalization project, it is literally “turning over a new leaf,” creating a fresh start for the area. Designed especially for south Shanghai, with a focus on nature and historical preservation, special attention is paid to ensure the extension of the environment into the interiors. Additionally, the old style architecture informs the language of the modern structures, creating an inviting community space.
