Located at Shenzhou Peninsula outside Wanning City, Hainan Island, CITIC Pacific is developing a world class seaside resort destination project with private resort villas, international brand hotels and a spectacular golf course. EKISTICS was commissioned to design a master plan and private resort villas for a Luxury Villa neighbourhood in the center of the new Resort Community. The master plan has been developed to create a unique interface between the golf course and the residential realm. The key element in creating a successful transition is to balance the needs of the golfer and the resident. To do this, EKISTICS, develped a plan that provide the housing with a feeling of safety and setback while ensuring that the character of the golf course and the golfers experience is not compromised by a relentless mass of buildings fronting onto the course. Undulating land forms and well place, lush vegetation also play a role in creating an exceptional experience.
The Villas are designed to maximize their position and orientation in the plan. The golf fronting villas are single storey villas with an open courtyard out to the view of the golf course and in some cases the ocean. The villas in-behind the golf fronting villas are elevated to take advantage of longer distant views. The internal villas have lush interior gardens with some mountain views from their upper floors. The villas have abundant outdoor rooms, swimming pools and spas and lush gardens to enjoy. All of the villas maintain privacy and exclusivity. A Central Clubhouse was designed for the residents featuring a a restaurant and bar, a large outdoor pool, tennis courts, a spa and fitness centre, games rooms, a kids play area and a convenience store.
