Shanghai Roadking Chateau du Nord & Parc du Nord, Shanghai, China This 17th century Vaux-le-Vicomte inspired estate community is a Shanghai landscape masterpiece whose sprawling gardens are some of the country's most enchanting and picturesque. From its intricate fountain systems to the meticulous gardens in harmony with the chateau architecture, the dramatic landscape design transforms the environment into a glorious landmark that brings collective delight to the community residents. (This project was managed by Mr. Hostetler when he was affiliated with HZS.) Above: The pedestrian garden path is lined with thousands of up-lit bubblers that dramatically define the cobblestone paths connecting the estates within the luxury chateau community. PHOTO: SHANGHAI ROADKING Shanghai Gemdale Tianjing, Shanghai, China The design approach for the Sheshan Tianjing development was to create a visually appealing, conservation-style landscape with an ecologically-informed urban planting scheme for residents to enjoy year round. A regenerative design strategy was implemented to transform the site into a living system, offering ecological aspects that interconnect numerous existing natural areas and conservation lands. (This project was managed by Mr. Hostetler when he was affiliated with HZS.) Left: This terraced garden design of outdoor rooms encourages residents to engage nature and enjoy the ponds, cascades, rain gardens and lush native environments. The terracing also acts as a flood buffer for the river, which is adjacent to a nature preserve.
