Lorenc + Yoo Design (Roswell, Ga.,) announced the opening of its Fish in the Garden project in Guangzhou
, China. Owned by China’s largest real estate developer, Vanke, the project features retail, hotel, clubhouse, and residential spaces, including high-end villas. The Lorenc+Yoo team developed overall project branding, wayfinding signage, entry features, and site sculpture.
The centerpiece of the project is an enormous fountain, visible immediately when a visitor enters the property.
The highlight of the fountain is a large sculpture of eight fish crossing paths in the air. In Chinese culture, eight is an auspicious number, so the sculpture not only adds to visual appeal and branding, but also communicates luck, safety, and prosperity to those who visit and reside there.
The firm also has several projects underway in India, and recently completed a signage and wayfinding refresh for John Portman’s landmark Atlanta Hyatt.
