Ripples @ Sanya, Hainan Island, China


Situated along the magnificent coastal beach line in Sanya, RIPPLES@Sanya is a residential development that draws its inspiration from the water element in its surrounding environment, in the form of small waves with undulatin folds to evoke the sensation of the energy ‘magnitude’ that radiates through the entire development.

Consisting of 4 residential towers sitting atop a communal facilities podium, each of the towers consists of a mixture of 2-3 Bedroom apartments, served by a central life core cladded with an external shimmery masaic skin to reflect the glistening waters around. All units within the 4 towers enjoy full seaview, with larger units having panoramic balconies that take full advantage of the sea and nature views abound.

The podium itself was created using forms of gentle waves folding in and out, creating various spatial platforms for different activities to take place. Concentrating on family oriented facilities, this activity podium brings about a new residential typology. A lifestyle redefined!
