Purple Jade Construction Continues
In 2013, Kirk was appointed as Design Architect for Purple Jade Stage 2, a series of luxury villas and apartments within the 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 Purple Jade with focal points, set apart from the homogeneous typology used more generally across the development.
