OCT&VANKE The Riviera





Nestled on the west bank of Xianghu Lake, the “OCT&VANKE The Riviera” features still water surrounded by four white walls and a sculptured ring bridge that connects the entrance to the courtyard and two-story square box building above the water. Direct and concise design as well as simple and plain materials create a serene but powerful architecture.

Just like rhythm in music and meter in poems, space has its own unique texture and layers, and constant and coherent alteration generates beauty. In the case of the Riviera, LSD uses simple black, white and grey as the main tone in the interior, and such stark layers set off well-proportioned layout.
