Abstract

This research focuses on creating the ‘liveability’ (in terms of well-functioning control on the social relationship in a direct home environment) in the capital city. The great majority of the residence in this city are young professionals, and they are facing problems that their ideal housing type - which provides essential qualities as affordability (affordable rental housing), accessibility (connectivity to the workplace through public transportation) and liveable living condition (proper privacy, neither a social cage nor an anonymous community without green) does not really exist. Thus, this project is in motion to create strategic approaches towards a more friendly and liveable neighbourhood in new towns which locate on the periphery of the capital, learning from the local ecological and urban context and with references to the history of dwellings in the old Beijing through Spacemate. And eventually looking towards several approaches aim to achieve a balanced harmony between landscape and city, history and future development as the context for neighbourhood design, focus on the qualities of control on social interaction, historical continuity and sustainable green.
