The construction of Huizhou is mostly in or near the mountainous areas, and the group layout is mountainous construction group layout, while the basic layout of Gusu is flat land layout.
Because of the inconvenience of transportation and undeveloped industry in mountainous areas, Huizhou is simpler to build than Gusu. For example, the typical method of building a single horse-head wall in Huizhou is usually three sections. In fact, the horse-head wall in Huizhou is very wide in the center, narrow at both ends, simple and intense in comparison, and has more game, such as those houses near Hongcun Moonmarsh posted in front. The Horsehead Wall of Gusu Residence is divided into five sections with equal length, which is more abundant and chaotic, and more artistic.
Build and decorate like woodcarving and stone carving, Huizhou carving is more general and freehand, lines are healthy, while Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Fujian carving is more delicate and mellow. This is what a friend of Huizhou artists told me. I saw some things, and I really feel that way.
Because in the mountainous area, Huizhou construction is also more closed (because of defense), the typical four rivers return to the hall, the whole external wall is basically solid wall, Gusu residential houses are not so common, such a single closed unit, of course, the climate is also a reason.

The other buildings are also good. Huizhou has many businessmen and Gusu literati. There are differences in temperament and interest. However, in Huizhou, there have been many Confucians in the past few hundred years, which have made up for them.
