Area: 3.80 Acres

The scope for landscape in this project was particularly limited, owing to service and architecture restrictions and only the front area was available for design. Thus, trying to transform limitations to assets, the cornerstone of the design was based in simplicity, minimalism and restraint of the palette. A drop-off water body and feature wall are the highlights of the entire landscape and their design is coherent with the lucid articulation of the interior lobby. An extensive but careful palette of trees, tropical shrubs, ground covers and water plants have been internally weaved into the overall design concept with sensitive consideration of the environment. This space serves as a constant reminder as to how greenery can bridge the ever increasing gap between urbanity and nature..
