Zhongkai Sheshan Villas consists of 78 private villas and a club facility, set on a 46-acre site near Shanghai, China. The site is configured into a network of canals, to provide a water edge to nearly every villa. The site plan and villas were designed by an international team of architects, planners, landscape architects, and interior designers; our firm was contracted to design eight villas. With each villa individually designed, the vision for the project is one of a mature, American neighborhood where different styles and scales have developed over time.

A strong emphasis is placed on the integration of the landscape and the interiors, as well as on a contemporary interpretation of classic Chinese design principals. The designs range in size from approximately 3,000 sf to approximately 7,000 sf.
