Located to the north of the national forest park, Beijing Shimao Olive Garden enjoys adjacency to the spacious forests which are tens of thousands of hectares in size. Covering an aggregate area of 100,000 square metres and a gross floor area of 300,000 square metres, the project consists of six row-configured buildings.
Featuring six Mediterranean-styled garden forests covering a total area of 30,000 square metres, the project enjoys both internal green coverage and the greenery of the world famous national park. Therefore, it is named “Forest Sea”.
The project will become a landmark in the northern area of the Beijing during Olympic Games 2008. In addition to the external forest views, the project also features great internal gardening designed by UK-based Atkins. The designer integrates Aegean fluidity, Athenian sports passion and Chinese royal gardening to build six theme gardens. Each apartment building corresponds to a theme garden. The six gardens surround a central lake with an area of 10,000 square metres to form a central oasis covering an area of 30,000 square metres, which is rare in Beijing.
More than 2,000 20-years old trees in front of the “Forest Sea” clubhouse of Shimao Olive Garden are rare urban greenery in Beijing, where various wild types of birds inhabit all year round. Living in sunshine and forests is really a dream of life.
