The wet and dry reflexology area offers an atmosphere of calm and peace.

ELICONIAS sigh in the sunshine while the trickle of water fills the quiet of the afternoon. All around, lush greenery abounds, blanketing the land with an inviting calm. This is Verve Suites, the much talked-about address in Mont Kiara. The chatter is about to grow louder now that the residence has won an award in the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards. It is impossible to walk into Verve Suites without admiring its landscape. Its gardens and stillness have soothed many stressed and brokenhearted souls. Designed by Nicole Van Den Steenhoven, her landscape brilliance has resulted in a serene jungle in the middle of busy Kuala Lumpur. “What we have done is create a lot of niches and areas for people to hang out,” said Van Den Steenhoven, who has been experimenting with plants since her childhood. “When designing, we must find out the needs of people who will be using it. We always try to find out what they want and then create possibilities. Design must be malleable.” She has been successful in that endeavour as residents are seen reading, chatting and relaxing in the recreational areas throughout the day. The tasteful landscape is a tempting invitation to all who walk by. Each area has been thoughtfully designed to provide enjoyment while remaining fully functional. At the Level 5 podium, where trees and plants stand in lush pride, Van Den Steenhoven’s brilliance is

Then there’s the wet and dry reflexology area in the midst of trees and plants. For those seeking some peace and quiet, the cosy reading pavilion which oversees a pond and a layer of greenery offers solitude and tranquillity. And there’s the Gardens of Concentrico – a stunning city jungle on the 31st floor of the Vogue Tower.

“We have more than 27 species of trees and 47 species of shrubs here. The four layers of a forest are featured here – canopy, shorter trees, low shrubs and ground plants,” explained Van Den Steenhoven. “The design is more introvert compared to the other sky lounges.” To allow the trees to grow well, a specially constructed perforated metal screen around the gardens was constructed to reduce the effect of the wind at this height. Also included in the development is a marvellous hydro gym.

Verve Suites comprises four distinct towers, featuring 933 fullyfurnished designer suites and four sky lounges – Vertigo Sky Lounge, Hypercubes Sky Lounge, Gardens of Concentrico and the Versilica Sky Beach. Also designed by Van Den Steenhoven, each sky lounge is accessible to all residents and provides different recreation opportunities. Verve Suites definitely brings residents closer to nature. Over 100,000sq ft of the development make up recreational and

landscaped areas, a testament to the developer’s determination to bring pleasure to residents.

Delighting customers Winning the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards will no doubt put the spotlight on low profile developer Bukit Kiara Properties (BKP) and its group managing director Datuk N. K. Tong. Prior to BKP, Tong was the executive director of Sunrise Berhad where he was actively involved in transforming the once rubber treeland Mont Kiara into a well-heeled neighbourhood. “I’m most grateful for this award as it is a recognition for the team after years of perseverance. I’m happy for them as well as for our customers. When we started out, we wanted to create something special, something that would stand the test of time. We wanted to ensure that our customers would enjoy living here,” said Tong. Enjoyment is one thing, but ensuring that it is sustainable is important. Not many developers have been able to do this. “From day one, we asked ourselves, what would make sense for this? What would be the most cost-effective way to add value? We could choose to put in a lot of expensive things and then make the customer pay. Or, we could choose to delight them. We chose the latter. The focus has always been on the customers. Awards can take care of themselves. “Our core strength has always been innovation, where we give intrinsic value at a manageable cost. To do that, one has to be innovative. After all, if it’s too expensive, it’s no longer value for money,” said Tong.

Landscaping makes all the difference > FROM PAGE 5 Have a splashing time in the infinity pool at the Hypercubes Sky Lounge.

The more trees a development has, the cleaner the air and the slower the heartbeat. BKP knew that landscaping was key in creating a special development. “The older the landscaping gets, the better it becomes because it grows. Anything green slows down your heartbeat and relaxes you,” said Tong. “There is a lot of tender loving care required when it comes to landscaping. We spent a lot here, even bringing in mature trees from nurseries. “We bought the trees when they were young and let them grow in their nursery. “We then brought them over when the trees matured. This costs more, but we need to think for the long-term as well as for ease of maintenance. “We start with the right ingredients, conditions, budget and the right frame of mind for maintenance. “Landscaping mustn’t just look good today. It must look even better tomorrow and in the years to come.”

The power of greenery Great landscaping has an innate effect in bringing out the beauty in people. At Verve Suites, residents love hanging out and getting to know each other. “When we started this nine years ago, we wanted to do something that would bring people together. At the time, social media wasn’t a buzzword yet. “But what we created has, in essence, brought real estate and the virtual media together. “We have a social media for Verve Suites which is very active. We have achieved this because we provide a lot of support in terms of management and services. “The facilities allow our residents to connect. The landscaping certainly makes a huge difference. I am sure that without the landscaping, we would be just another concrete jungle. “Landscaping helps a development. As a developer, it’s very tempting to cut corners on landscaping. Instead, we spend a lot to gain the immediate impact. “Many things in a development are revenue-generating, but not the trees and not the gardens we have created. But what they do is create a wonderful effect. “For landscaping to be impactful, the management has to be passionate about plants. While we had Nicole, we also needed the support of everyone else to see to its success. “Workers had to be very careful once we brought a plant in. Everyone had to be mindful to create a safe zone,” said Tong.

Sustainable environment “Let’s be honest, all developments destroy the environment,” said Tong. “Having said that, how can we minimise that effect?” A lot has been spent on creating a sustainable environment at the Verve Suites. Low VOC paints and aluminium formwork (substituting plywood)

were used during construction. This translates to aluminium being recycled 1,000 times before it is used to make a can. In landscaping, it’s not just about its aesthetic effect – it’s also about functionality. “We could have chosen to use artificial fertilisers and synthetics in our plants and it would look good for only three to six months. “Tending to plants is very much like tending to a baby. You can’t make them grow fast and when they catch a disease, you need to give them rest and tender, loving care. “There is R&D going on all the time. What we are doing may not be immediately noticeable, but we have taken pains to give some of our plants a 1.5m soil foundation and make sure they “grip hands” underneath. “All these take effort, especially during the initial stages. But should there ever be a storm, our plants and trees will stand strong. It may be more expensive in the beginning, but we are future-proofing our landscaping. “We believe in innovating on the cutting-edge, not on the bleeding edge. In whatever we do, it has to be cost-effective and safe.” Verve Suites is all about bringing delight to customers. To do that requires the software and hardware. The interaction would be the software while the units and shops are the hardware. Landscaping is a bit of both. “When you feel good about space, magic happens. People become friendlier, you feel more neighbourly. “The whole team was really engaged in reaching this goal and we carried this through from construction to delivery. “All of us lead busy lives. We wanted to create a lifestyle that lets people play hard – and what we have created attracts people who

Impacting society one person at a time Developments in Malaysia have been praised for its high international standards and certainly, Verve Suites has done well in bringing a little more sophistication to living standards. “It is not just a beautiful development, it also bears meaning. “Our biggest contribution as a group would be that we encourage residents to take on this passion for well-being and the environment. “If we can teach residents about landscaping, value and well-being through our social media and facilities, we can grow Malaysia one person at a time,” Tong added.

Van Den Steenhoven says that in designing, one must first find out the needs of the people using it.

Linear Park at Puteri Harbour, Nusajaya, offers a world-class and luxurious lifestyle community.

Linear Park is a place that is engaging, contemporary and culturally relevant.

Urban haven T

he Linear Park at Puteri harbour, Nusajaya, is planned as an integrated urban waterfront and marina development offering a panoramic view of the Straits of Johor. It aims to redefine luxury living while offering boundless investment opportunities. Located next to Kota Iskandar, the development offers a world-class and luxurious lifestyle community with exceptional waterfront living, dining, entertainment, the arts and culture in a safe and postcard picture natural setting. It will be an ideal location for global or regional commerce and events, with state-of-the art facilities and a business friendly environment. The master plan visualises the development as an iconic waterfront location with quality environment and structures that complement each other, integrate well into the surroundings and contribute towards a rich, vibrant and textured

waterfront precinct – a place that is engaging, contemporary and culturally relevant. The objectives are: • To enhance the identity of the waterfront. • To create amenities for all groups of people. • To promote a sense of community within the urban spaces. • To adopt safety and security measures through environment design. • To promote environmental sustainable designs and use of resources. The Urban Design Guidelines of this development focuses on five precincts within the waterfront development – Nakhoda, Laksamana, Tanjung, Bahtera and Puteri precincts. For the submission of this Malaysian Landscape Architecture Award 2013, the area of focus is the development of the public open space component of the Laksamana precinct.

The public open space acts as a green lung and can be used for public festive gatherings and events. It is the centre of gravity for all the open spaces in this precinct. The guiding principles of this development, especially those that relates to landscape, are as follows: • Landscape elements that respond to local cultural conditions using materials, textures and forms that celebrate the Malaysia native landscape. • Creating a bold and contemporary tropical landscape theme. • Creating landscapes for a variety of uses such as large public gatherings, special events, celebrations and as pedestrian circulation corridor. • Develop strong indoor/outdoor relationships between commercial and retail and the adjacent public laneways and plazas and residential and the adjacent gardens to activate and enliven the public domain. • Use trees, structures, water features and plants to create

cool microclimates. • Provide a clear delineation between public and private uses while encouraging passive surveillance to increase security. • Create destination landscapes at key locations as focal points. • Create a landscape that will evolve into a multi-layered and engaging place.

Landscape approach for the Laksamana precinct in relation to public open space • Open drainage system for storm water management before it is expelled into the harbour. • Drop structures in the wetland system to slow down velocity of water using natural stones. • Strong linear geometry in the parklands as an expression of water movement. • Using trees to emphasise the linear geometry and provide shade for the pathway system. • Strong visual and pedestrian

Unique home address

A combination of stone, steel, glass, wood and plants creates an iconic, stylish and contemporary design.

11@Mont’ Kiara is a new, different and unique development in Mont’ Kiara.

1@MONT’ Kiara is the result of an idea to create something new, different and unique for Sunrise Bhd in Mont’ Kiara. The “rotunda” building form is semi-organic and due to the terrain, has resulted in complex “multilayered” landscape spaces. Its concept is to link these layers with a combination of water, plants and light. Forcing a formal landscape into the open spaces within and around the building did not seem practical and the developer decided to adopt an organic and “fluid” design approach. This allows the landscape to effortlessly penetrate and permeate through the open spaces. The developer gained inspiration from the behaviour of fluids and how they scatter, coalesce and move through spaces and across surfaces. Fluids are physically represented by pools and water features and represented in abstract in the form and layout of paving and features. Water is used as a transfer material to allow light to penetrate and connect the levels vertically. The organic nature of the design lends itself to a contemporary interpretation of “Art Deco”, which has been used as an influence in com-

The main entrance to 11@Mont’ Kiara.

bining the main materials of stone, steel, glass, wood and plants into an iconic, stylish and contemporary design. This will be a “Design Hallmark”, unique to 11@Mont’ Kiara. The developer was given a free reign over the design of all components within the open rotunda space and wanted to explore the concept of “stacking” landscape elements to get the most functional use out of limited space. This design process resulted in the creation of a “floating” pool, where instead of a vessel floating in water, the water is in a vessel floating in space. The elevated lap pool resembles a space ship hovering above the main environmental deck. Multiple circular acrylic panels allow light to penetrate through the pool, creating functional and naturally lit spaces below. A cluster of panels above the car park central void allow light to cascade and penetrate into the centre of the car park structure. All these come together to make the vision and concept of the development a reality as a new and unique development in the market.

Green space is a vital part of the development.

Breathtaking view of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline from the Sky Club.

heN you come home to Setia Sky Residences, it’s like coming home to your very own tropical paradise. envisioned as a luxurious sanctuary in the city, Setia Sky Residences offers not just the amenities found in the world’s best tropical resorts, but also features palm trees, crystalclear waters and blue skies. Setia Sky Residences comprises four residential towers situated on 2.4ha of land strategically located along Jalan Tun Razak. The gleaming 40-storey towers are arranged in an eye-catching curvilinear design. The landscape design was inspired by the terraced paddy fields of Bali as well as the works of legendary Brazilian landscape architect and artist Roberto Burle Marx. Together, the organic lines and shapes of the Balinese countryside and Marx’s modernist art gave birth to a landscape that responds to the curving profile of the architecture. In Malaysia, Marx is best known for designing the KLCC park. Therefore, the landscape design pays tribute to the iconic building that put Malaysia on the world architectural map.

A tropical oasis in the city

A resort in the sky The landscape design is best seen in the two one-acre Sky Decks, each of which bridges two towers at Level 5.

Place to relax and enjoy a spectacular view

A spectacular view of Kuala Lumpur city from the Sky Villa.

> FROM PAGE 12 each Sky Deck is designed to resemble the sinuous lines of a Marx painting from a bird’s eye view. The organic layout takes the form of a lush tropical garden with a water feature that meanders the length of the Sky Deck, featuring a Jacuzzi, 50m lap pool, wading pool and children’s pool. A cascading water wall lends more visual interest as it fills the air with the soothing sounds of falling water. From the quiet semi-enclosed private spas to the expansive deck area and cosy pavilions on the Sky

Deck, there’s a visual treat in store for you. Trees are planted in abundance all around the Sky Deck to create cool, shaded areas so that you can enjoy the outdoors in comfort. Imagine relaxing on a deck chair by the pool under a leafy canopy, it is like you’re on a holiday at a tropical island resort.

The lush life More than 40 species of mostly native plants can be found throughout Setia Sky Residences, from the ground level to the Sky Deck and the Sky Club on Level 33A. These were selected not just for their aesthetic effect, but also for

Imagine relaxing on a deck chair by the pool under a leafy canopy – it is like you’re on a holiday. its low maintenance, resistance to drought and hardiness. The landscape design of the Sky Deck can even be seen at the ground level. In addition, two to three metres of lush plantings around the perimeter create a place where everything is soothing and peaceful. At the entrance to residence, frangipani trees are planted to make a statement.

At the upper levels, plants are also used to create a striking effect. Sculptural plants in containers are placed at strategic points throughout the Sky Club. The objective is to bring residents closer to nature without compromising on the magnificent views of the city’s skyline, which includes the Petronas Twin Towers. Setia Sky Residences has become synonymous with luxury. Setia Sky

Residences has been awarded the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Award 2013 for excellent landscape planning and development in the property development category. ■ For more information, call the sales and marketing department at 03-2714 5252 from 9am to 6pm (Mondays to Fridays) and 10am to 6pm (weekends and public holidays).

Living closer to nature

Koe: I realised that if people want their house to look nice, they will be willing to pay for it.

Rymba Creek features a variety of tropical plants.

W

hen it comes to a home, what’s outside is as important, if not more so, than what’s inside. Living in the modern world, the way people keep their homes reflects their busy lifestyles, for example, the lack of gardens on most landed properties. While not everyone has a green thumb or enjoys mulching, transplanting and fertilising, it cannot be denied that a well-landscaped garden brings a sense of peace and tranquility. At Setia eco Park, the concept of living in harmony with nature is a serious matter. The project began in 2004 with the novel idea of incorporating nature into an urban neighbourhood. At that time, SP Setia decided that this project will be the one that brings change to the property industry. And the one person to bring such a change is none other than SP Setia’s chief executive officer Datuk Koe Peng Kang. Koe said: “When we first started, I realised that if people want their house to look nice, they will be willing to pay for it. even their cars are

taken care of beautifully. Yet, when it comes to their gardens and landscape, people just don’t care.” however, he knew that if he were to create a beautifully landscaped township, people would want to be part of it. Koe insisted that in order for

this idea to work, there should be a variety of landscape and flora and fauna. Planting different kinds of species would need nurturing and certainly maintenance. > SEE PAGE 14

The eco-park is situated nearby the Bukit Cherakah forest.

Beautiful and tranquil surroundings

There are many pools and streams within the development.

> FROM PAGE 13 But first, Koe needed the municipal council’s approval. Although the council was helpful, it lacked the budget to maintain the landscape of this 320ha of prime freehold land. SP Setia then decided to undertake this responsibility on behalf of the council. When planting began, every nook and cranny was filled with a variety of local tropical species. This move gave local tropical species a chance to show off their beauty. In the end, the landscape turned out looking like a typical tropical garden. For example, Rymba Creek features many different species of tropical plants, with many unfamiliar varieties. The eco-park was designed to allow birds from the nearby Bukit Cherakah forest to fly low and hover at the parks. Furthermore, the lakes are freshly stocked with fish but fishing is

not allowed. Although there are many pools and streams within the eco-park, there are not many mosquitoes as the fish feeds on mosquito larvae. “We can’t just be interested in profits – it comes to such an extent now where we need an ecologically balanced environment,” Koe said. SP Setia strives to work towards preserving the environment. “You don’t disturb it, but you keep it beautiful and people would pay a premium for this lifestyle.” After 10 years, Setia Eco Park has lived up to its reputation – Rymba Creek was recently awarded the Malaysian Landscape Architecture Award 2013 for excellent landscape planning in the property development category. The awards are presented by the Institute of Landscape Architects. ■ For more information, contact the sales and marketing officers at 03-3343 2228 or e-mail eco-sales@spsetia.com.my
