The Jin Sha Zhou eco town combines residential, retail and community facilities in a dynamic Pearl River delta neighbourhood.
Striking the ideal balance
Awarded through an international competition, Allen Jack+Cottier was recognised as being best placed to deliver against the design brief for Jin Sha Zhou.
Inherent in this was the desire to find the perfect balance between civil requirements and maintaining strong connections to the surrounding environment.
A natural approach
The 27-hectare site for Jin Sha Zhou was completed in 2010. It retained and utilised all the elements in its surrounding environment.
Built in hilly, forested terrain, the development retains the waterways and aquaculture systems that add to the area’s natural beauty.
The site also connects residential areas back to the forest with gardens that reflect the changing seasons.
Jin Sha Zhou is a developing area just outside Guangzhou city. It will soon be connected to Hong Kong via an upgraded freeway, maximising convenience for residents.
