广东北洛秘境悬崖泳池景观设计 | 邦景园林
The project is located at the southwest end of Hailing Island, which is located in Yangjiang City, Guangdong Province. It enjoys the reputation of “Beidaihe in the South” and “Hawaii in the East” and is a resort in the south. In the future, the island will be transformed into a huge comprehensive cultural and tourism project –developing residential buildings, villas, resort hotels, shopping complexes,supporting coastal sports venues, water theater, children’s water park, wetland park, bar style street, health park and other leisure and entertainment venues.

After many field visits, exploration and scene-taking, the designer finally discovered the south cliff with considerable land development potential, geological terrain，satisfying the construction conditions, and the best orientation and view. The swimming pool is surrounded by mountains on three sides and facing the sea on the south, covering an area of nearly 3,000 square meters. The construction took 15 months and cost nearly 40 million yuan.
Concept · Beyond the mortal world and Adjacent to the sea
With a modern minimalist approach and an infinite yearning for the magnificent natural scenery, the design seeks to “place” a swimming pool on the steep cliff with the least design lines, the least colors and the least ecological intervention. It is closely connected with the surrounding mountains and sea environmental resources, allowing visitors to truly embrace the sea and the sky.

The island cliff pool is facing south and leaning against the mountain to the north, allowing visitors to face the softest and cleanest sea breeze in the south, watch the scene of the sun, the moon rising in the east and setting in the west, and the tide rising and retreating in the evening, and feel the wonder and grandeur of nature.

Highlight · Holiday Time
The pool tiles are selected in light blue, which reflects the refreshing and dreamy blue luster under the refraction of sunlight and water surface, forming a certain color difference with the blue of the sea, enriching the color level of the sea surface and bringing unforgettable visual enjoyment to tourists. The green space around the swimming pool is planted with unique palm trees, such as Hyophorbe lagenicaulis(L. H. Bailey) H. E. Moore, Pandanus utilis Borg., Wodyetia bifurcata A.K.Irvine, etc., which harmoniously blend with the native plant communities of the surrounding mountains and cliffs, and at the same time, exude a strong subtropical holiday style.

Construction·Between mountains and the sea
From the stage of project planning, design decision and completion, the chief designer and his team have faced and solved one formidable challenge after another. The first is to be familiar with and evaluate the site conditions, which requires designers to repeatedly investigate and explore the topography and geology, as well as perform precise structural mechanical calculation, so as to ensure the safety and implementation of the design. Secondly, in order to overcome the mountain cliff conditions, for example, in order to protect the surrounding environment, the construction does not use large-scale mechanical equipment to assist the operation, most of the construction work needs to be completed by human transport and manual installation, in addition to overcome the construction material secondary transfer, the construction of the coastal plank road, mountain road steep slope construction and other difficulties.

Design team through many times of field exploration, the understanding of the site terrain and plants, identified the need to keep the area and scope of the rectification, in the design process, we not only retained a large number of existing trees and shrubs, also through the plant collocation and landscape structure adorn got a lot of fun and nature have distinguishing feature each space, to ensure that all the unity of the visual experience.
