Huizhou Galaxy Dandi is located in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Big Bay District，nearby Huizhou South Railway Station and the Ya Gong-Ding Forest Park。The total area of the project covers 1.5 million square meters, the architecture surface is about 2.6 million square meters, which is one of the biggest communities in Huizhou. The developer Huizhou Galaxy company considers the future resident population of the community will be more than 30,000 people, so in their urban planning they planned to do a large number of public facilities constructions. Located on the east side of the Galaxy Dandi, the Galaxy Sport Park is an important section of community activities in the whole public facilities construction planning.

The project site is located at the foot of the east side of the Dandi hill, with an area of about 28,000 m2, adjacent to the large area of an existing residential buildings in the west, and Fengtian reservoir to the east, forming a natural climate innate, providing superior natural conditions for building an all-round activities park.
▲场地改造前现状 Before the reconstruction
There has an existing community activity center building, so our landscape design mission will also consider its function and surrounding site updates, improve the main entrance, parking area, rest & leisure area, other buffer functions of landscape updates.
When the designer is on the spot investigation, the reservoir that discovers to live near at hand is beautiful.Therefore, the designer adopts the way of borrowing scenery, which does not belong to the park originally, and visually integrates the interior scenery of the park with the scenery of the reservoir, which reflects the unity of “harmony”.
▲公园内景与周边自然景色链接在一起 The interior scenery of the park is linked with the surrounding natural scenery
The topography of the site follows the north-east side of the hill, down the trend, the maximum difference of the level is about 15 meters, which can be used to shape the terrain. Designers want to be able to create three-dimensional activity spaces: Firstly, combined with the difference of the levels, the outdoor activities need all kinds of places, all-age activity areas and children’s activity areas and other places for the layout; Secondly, the jogging runway is used to connect the various venues in series to strengthen the link of outdoor sport.
▲场地空间布局策略 Function layout strategy
The park will be opened for all- age people, such as the parents, the children as well as sport enthusiasts. Then, the designers have planned some multi-functional layout, as the regular small football field, X- basketball court, dynamic tennis court, multi-functional sport field, skateboarding court, leisure sport and X-sport venues interspersed with integration. The designer fully considered the relationship between light and various sport conflicts, they try to avoid the south- north direction preventing glare from the sun.
▲全民运动主题分布 Sport Theme Layout Design
The principle of layout follows changes in the terrain: the designer places the largest football field in a flat area of the site, the football field was put in the form of a 1 plus 2, the two mini practice pitches are integrated into a large field to meet more different sport needs; while the north side of the site has the most complex and steepest terrain, then our designers thought for children’s activity area. With consideration of safety factors, they designed a rich, exciting playground for the children.

Landscape design for public space
There are many different public spaces in the Dandy community, but there is no space similar to the project. The park combines indoors and outdoors spaces to provide many public leisure spaces for sports and various parent-children activities. The main color of the site is blue-gray, sometimes we use orange as the jump color to put in evidence some special activities. Silicone is used as the main ground material, combination of colorful EPDM and colored asphalt. The spaces link fluently, to enhance atmosphere of the overall activities, to optimize the activities experiences.
▲打造社区中的户外活动圈 Create an outdoor activity neighborhood in the community
▲色彩缤纷的活动乐园 Colorful playground
▲网球场空间 Tennis court
▲自然野趣的蹦床花园 Natural and wild Trampoline Garden
Halfway up the hill under the landscape space, we don’t want to interrupt event venue contact with natural ecological landscape area, with a simple and natural landscape, through the plant and flexible configuration space and green space, such as some rubble stone material, arc planting space, surrounded by tree-lined space, bring people into being naturally embrace from the details.
