SCOPE   Concept and detailed landscape architectural services for an exclusive mixed use development; ‘Sanctuary’ in Kuala Lumpur.

URBAN OASIS   The proposal looks to create a high quality ‘urban oasis’ based around a central residents pool area. This is supported by a number of ‘retreat’ spaces.

TOPOGRAPHY   The site’s challenging topography was used to create a dramatic 8m waterfall at the key level change to the site and form a memorable entrance feature.  The residents pool area is framed by smaller family pools and a series of sculptural gardens and spaces for relaxation.  A ‘walkable garden’ is also proposed; as a space for exploration and discovery.
