Yunling Mountain Golf Resort Community - Kunming, Yunnan, China
This element of the Yunling Mountain resort community is located closest to the feature amenities of the project including a golf clubhouse, a boutique hotel, and a full-featured day spa. The master plan provided a variety of housing densities and types ranging in size from 900 square meter corporate villas to 200 square meter attached courtyard villas. The design integrated a network of bicycle and pedestrian linkages to the clubhouse, spa, hotel and public open spaces. Since all streets will be used by cars and golf carts, parking for both types of vehicles was provided. The pre-existing agricultural terrace walls were used to organize the arrangement of lots and streets so that the architectural walls of the buildings and sites would express the terraced planes of the site, providing a memory of the site’s prior use and unifying the community design with consistent materials and a continuity of forms.
