Old world meets new world at Meridian Gate, where Chinese tradition blends with contemporary westcoast design. Showcasing wide roof overhangs and classic brick exteriors, the project also incorporates a recurring ‘moon gate’ feature (circular doorways) that is customary to Chinese architecture. Meridian Gate comprises three four-storey buildings with 259 units, grouped in a courtyard arrangement around a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse and outdoor pool.
