A sense of serenity washes over us as we tiptoe through this set of luxurious Chinese-style villa interiors, each open and spacious and decorated in calming laconic palettes and delicate detail. Visualised by ZHBB Vision, these spaces reminisce about the beautiful scenery of Jiangnan, the picturesque lands that lie south of the Yangtze River’s lower reaches. These peaceful riverside memories inspire water-filled courtyards, where reflection pools surround majestic trees, and colourful koi fish swim. Light-filled living rooms and expansive dining rooms provide uplifting places in which large groups of friends and extended family can gather and socialise into the evening. Traditional tea rooms respect long-standing ceremony.
