Community building through inclusivity
With the design vision of inclusive community that supports smaller neighborhoods and various income levels, the masterplan focuses on creating socially integrated sustainable living campus. Each phase is designed as self-sufficient cluster and help form a neighborhood-based living environment.
Site planning for a sustainable living
Preserving the existing flora and fauna was one of the design drivers that helped adding to the character of sustainable living for the urban young. The site was planned to have a northsouth street grid to allow the apartments for clear orientation as well as light, ventilation, and breath-taking views. Open and semi-open spaces are weaved into the street grid seamlessly for individual communities to gather and interact. Streets and lanes are designed narrowly to create a more intimate scale of outdoor spaces.
