Kaifeng is a historic city and was the capital of China during the Song Dynasty. Respecting its heritage and cultural significance, Haskoll created a masterplan which reinforces the intimate scale and character of this special urban environment. The residential and commercial development encircles a lake and water course.
The proposals are arranged within and adjacent to the ancient city wall. The design creates a series of communal courtyards around which low to medium density town houses and apartments are organised ensuring a neighbourly and cohesive development.
