Weddles produced 4 high quality unique courtyard designs for one of our longest running Chinese clients, Delta Hospital in Shanghai. We produced a ‘Pan Asia’ Garden, ‘Zen’ Garden, ‘Freestyle’ Garden, and ‘Ming’ Garden.
The client selected the ‘Ming’ design as pictured. This design is based on a simplified form ‘Ming Style’ Suzhou Gardens. It consists of most key classic garden elements, such as pavilion, lily pond, stone hill, waterfall, etc, which can be found in the Private Scholar Humble Administrators Garden and Liu Garden. The arrangement of all garden elements are carefully considered to ensure high quality views from surrounding vistas. This garden would be a good example of how to transfer the ‘spirit’ of traditional Classic Suzhou Garden into modern design.
