Harmonizing Nature and Luxury

King’s Lake

Shenyang, China

The impressive grandeur of King’s Lake is clearly rooted in spectacular European traditions. The richness of the project’s overall architectural style and atmosphere is inspired by the great European castles and gardens.

The overall construction is broken down into three phases and European regions: Phase I (shown here) reflecting the fantasy of German castle influences; Phase II representing the romance of the grand estates and manors of England and France; and Phase III celebrating the eco-sensitive progression of euro-contemporary designs with Italian and Danish influences. Although each home’s dramatic architectural features will evoke an era in time, all homes are designed to cater to modern living at its best with four home types including single family estates, courtyard homes, townhouses and cluster homes, ranging from 1,937 SF (180 m2) to an expansive 8,611 SF (800 m2).

The master plan strives to commemorate the natural beauty of Europe with its cascading streams, tranquil ponds, colorful flowers, stately trees and scenic views. Nature is timeless and therefore a strong emphasis on naturalistic landscape features will ensure a continuity of scenic splendor woven throughout all phases, regardless of the timeframe of architectural design. Integrating lifestyle with landscape is carefully planned with parks, pedestrian paths, gazebos and bridge decks for quiet reflection, gathering gardens and courtyards for social interaction and an extensive lakeside promenade and island for community recreation.
