The design for the Treasure Development marries both maximum monetary success for the United Development Group and a minimum of uniformity for the end user. In this sense, the scheme provides a very high density and at the same time a strong individual image both for the towers as well as for the apartments - everybody can recognize his apartment already from the street!
The masterplan for Treasure Development is simple and clear:
A two storey base with commercial use for shops and restaurants sets a clear frame around the site. The shops have goods access from Dongge Road in the south and from Fei Feng Road in the east.
Towards the west a pleasant green pocket park is opening up and provides with a swimming pool and sports facilities various leisure opportunities.
Underneath the base and accessed from the west, a two level basement parking allows for some 25.000 m² for parking places. On top of this base four elegant towers are situated such that no tower is blocking the long views from another – so every apartment has a pleasant long view over Nanning. Designed on a rational column grid the outline of each floor plate is jumping in and out. This very simple but effective modification generates great value added: if it jumps out by 2 metres, a large cantilevering bay window makes the apartment unique. Where it jumps in, a large balcony, terrace or loggia is generated and makes a unique selling point.
