YIHE Design is located in the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California and Wuhan China. It was founded in 2019 by Chungpo Fang, a registered landscape architect in the United States, along with co-owner Song Guan.

The firm’s 45 employees have backgrounds in landscape design, architecture, art, engineering, and ecology. YIHE Design offers extensive experience in designing high-use landscapes in complex urban contexts.

 

YIHE Design is committed to creating public spaces by combining science and art, retaining the natural environment, promoting social harmony, and driving economic vitality through landscape architecture, planning, and urban design. We seek to conceive, design, and build fine environments with our clients to achieve sustainable development.

We believe that the inspiration for a design comes from the project itself and that a design concept can be inspired by many factors—sometimes it’s from the client’s corporate culture, sometimes it’s from the aesthetics of the surrounding urban fabric, sometimes it’s from an urgent need to solve the ecological problems of the environment, and sometimes it’s from the historical memory of the site itself.

Sustainable thinking is the foundation of our designs. We identify, protect, and reuse the site resources to enhance the design, and we bring down the energy consumption and minimize environmental damage. When projects have highly complex issues, we bring in our best-in-the-field professionals in areas such as water and environment engineers, logo and visual guidance consultants, and artists to complete the project.

The scale of the site, the aesthetics of the space, the nature of the users, and the attributes that would make the place eco-friendly are the things we love to study. We are committed to seeking a balance—with a unified design language—to integrate all the needs of a project. We think communication with the client throughout the design process is the key to exploring the maximum potential of a site and finally finding the spirit of the site.

We have a unique standard in our designs of details: the good details must be easy to achieve and sustainable in construction in the meantime of being time-tested aesthetics. We therefore value the effective and efficient onsite cooperation and communication during the implementation stage. Our local team in China are fully involved in a project even during the execution phase to ensure the best results for any project.

Landscape is a medium to bridge people to the environment and its history, culture, roots, and even its associated resonance of memories. These can promote and increase the value of the site and its surrounding environment. We believe authenticity should be at the core of the design without unnecessary pilings and symbols.

以和设计事务所,由美国注册景观建筑师(RLA)Chungpo Fang(方仲伯)于2019年创立。

以和设计致力于通过景观建筑,规划以及城市设计,结合科学与艺术,创造能够引起共鸣的艺术空间、重建生态的自然环境、促进社会和谐并带动经济活力的公共场地。我们追求与客户一同构思、制作且建造设计精美的环境,最终实现可持续的城市发展。

我们相信设计的灵感来自于项目本身,设计概念启发可以有许多可能,有时候是业主自豪的企业文化、有时候是场地周遭的城市机理、有时候是一个场地急需解决的生态环境问题、有时候是纯粹当地使用者的功能需要、有时候是场地自身的历史记忆…

永续环保的思维是我们做设计的基础,不管任何项目我们都尽可能的去保护利用场地以及周遭原本的景观资源,将设计所带来能源的消耗以及对环境的破坏减到最小。我们理解有的时候项目具备复杂的场地条件以及挑战,需要由景观带领其他专业顾问一起解决问题,我们拥有丰富的经验和水环境工程师、标志视觉导向顾问、艺术家、建筑师等协作完成项目。

场地的尺度、空间美学、人的使用以及生态环保的属性是我们喜欢研究的,我们致力寻求一个平衡点,用合一的语汇来整合项目各方面的需要,我们也具备良好的沟通能力,在设计的过程中尽可能探索项目自身的潜力,力求在每个项目上能打造出专属于每个项目的场地精神。

我们对细节的处理有独特的要求,好的细节必须是要相对容易实现并永续的施工细部,同时经得起时间考验的审美,现场的配合与良好的沟通是项目实施阶段重要的关键,我们在中国的团队会延续方案阶段的努力,为项目带来最好的成果。

景观设计是一个良好的介质,好的景观能够引起人们对环境、历史、文化、甚至回忆的共鸣,也能够增加场地自身以及带动周遭环境的价值。正因如此我们认为景观设计应探索对于项目来说最重要的道,并倾全力围绕这个核心来打造项目,摈弃不需要的堆砌与符号,将最纯粹的景观体现出来,作出最真实的当地景观。
