Project: Great Wall Villages





Great Wall Villages

Location: Beijing, China

An hour north of Beijing, surrounded on three sides by some of the most significant fortresses and sections of the Great Wall found anywhere in China, lies a stunning valley where Sherwood helped to develop a long-term conservation vision for the land. Complementary to the conservation of 95% of the land is a light touch contemporary residential development complemented by traditional village, hotel and natural spa; combining traditional Chinese courtyard architecture with the best modern amenities. The local Chinese commune which has historically cared for this area will continue to be active stewards of the land; while project-wide sustainable energy, water, and wastewater infrastructure will integrate seamlessly with the historic agricultural terraces that will continue to support productive farmland.
