KIRK designs a series of luxury villas in Beijing
In 2013, KIRK was appointed as Design Architect for a series of luxury villas and apartments within a prestigious Beijing development. The waterside villas are each unique in their language and materiality, but share the common objective of maximising the experience of a landscape setting.
The idea around each of the eight villas follows a defining material or elemental theme – forest, stone, water, glass. Maximising the luxury of space and landscape was central to planning views within and across the villas, which themselves play an important role in enriching views in their surrounds. The sculptural nature of the villas punctuate the landscape with focal points, set apart from the homogeneous typology used more generally across the development.
