FOREWORD ILAM PRESIDENT

FOREWORD PLATINUM SPONSOR

The Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards, or MLAAs, marks the 8th annual award ceremony since its inception in 2007, with less than 20 submissions in 2 categories. Today, the awards have reached 7 categories with the latest introduced category, Young Landscape Architect Award, which honours individuals, with less than 10 years of experience, for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the profession.

It is a great honour to be invited to pen a few words for the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Yearbook 2015 on behalf of S P Setia, as Platinum Sponsor of the book. Firstly, a big thank you to the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM) and heartiest congratulations for successfully organising the 8th Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards. Your efforts in inspiring the evolution in landscape design trends in Malaysia is truly commendable.

The MLAAs have come a long way with more and more industry players joining us to be a part of this prestigious award. This is evidenced by our all-time high number of submissions with 130 entries this year, compared to 106 in the previous year. Submissions consist of both Malaysian projects and international projects from Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Today, landscaping and real estate projects are almost inseparable. More often than not, first impressions are made up of the landscape surrounding a potential home. At S P Setia, we understand that besides looking for a well-connected, safe development, complete with a myriad of facilities and amenities, residents are also looking for a green and sustainable environment where they can flourish and grow with loved ones.

The MLAA awards have also raised the profile of the landscape architecture industry as the award was endorsed by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA), at their council meeting, during the IFLA Asia Pacific Congress in Lombok, September 2015. Through this award, we hope to bring the various professions in built environment together to send a strong message to the community about the importance of a quality outdoor living environment.

Ingrained into every Setia development are verdant landscapes and green spaces that are pleasing to the eyes. Our commitment is to cultivate sustainable lifestyle practices for the sake of our communities, their children and future generations. Our objective is to build responsibly, from the point of ground-breaking, to put in place environmentally friendly infrastructure, coupled with innovative landscape design concepts to ensure all projects are sustainable.

This year, we have seen emerging landscape design trends, fresh ideas and innovative solutions at work. We hope you will be inspired by this publication as it highlights our homegrown landscape architects and their designs. We at ILAM would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to S P Setia Berhad Group, our Platinum Sponsor, for making this publication possible.

We would like to congratulate all the winners and applaud their hard work, tenacity, and exemplary efforts in making developments in Malaysia a sustainable and greener place in which to live.

Think BIG For the Future!

For most people, spending time outdoors in well-designed public spaces is a rewarding experience to be enjoyed. However, fast paced city life could make one stressful over time. The typical modern day lifestyle, one occupied with consumer electronics, can also be mentally exhausting. Recent studies have shown that people are healthier and more blissful in areas where they have access to nature. Thus, green urban living design is becoming therapeutically fulfilling. Beautiful surroundings and scenic landscapes providing natural floral scents are scientifically proven to rejuvenate the spirit, mind and body. With these benefits, the environment has unique values, as opposed to appreciation for building architecture or interior design. However, we are concerned that design and innovation for outdoor landscaping is not being given its due priority. Thus, to address such challenges, it is better to leverage the skills and talents of trained professional landscape architects.

A landscape architect’s contribution is priceless, as we design holistically, integrating building plans with compatible landscaping. The landscape architecture profession is prepared to take the lead in shaping outdoor spaces and framing public awareness. Our role is to create, maintain, protect, and enhance spaces and places, both private and public, to be functional, beautiful and sustainable for a community’s diverse needs. The outdoors begins on every front doorstep, hence fresh ideas for landscape work should continuously be evolving to meet the needs of every citizen. Design integration is important as its primary objective is to enhance environmental values and make spaces sustainable for future generations. With this in mind, I am excited to take up the challenge for a better future. It is timely to dream big for the future, a future in which we can make a big difference.

As a Landscape Architect, I am interested in exploring the value people place on the environment. From my interactions with the public, I have found that they treasure pleasant and memorable outdoor experiences. LAr. Wan Salamatul Juita Wan Hashim Winner MLAA 2015, Young Landscape Architect Award

Lanson Place\ Verticas Residensi

Jalan Ceylon, Kuala Lumpur

Verticas Residensi, and one internationally renowned serviced apartment tower - Lanson Place, are nestled within the forest reserve niche of Bukit Ceylon - a modern urban abode in the tranquil setting of a tropical rainforest. The design embraces the surrounding nature through the sensitive use of tropical native trees and water features with natural rocks. Views of the multiple landscape decks are channeled toward the surrounding rainforest, taking advantage of the unique setting. Despite being a dense development, sufficient greenery is achieved with green pockets allocated at various levels interlacing with each other throughout the lofty residential towers.

The Treez Bukit Jalil

The anatomy of a tree; its roots, trunk, branches, and twigs, inspired the creation of The Treez Jalil Residence’s landscape concept. The design of the ground level represents the strength of the root system with sizeable trees and bountiful shrubs planted to represent the root systems. The 4m deep sunken lobby is the main feature of the whole landscape concept. This element embraces a serene forest feel, yet is equipped as a stylish hangout, surrounded by a waterfall and a giant tree trunk, with sculptural foliage hanging gently from the ceiling. Along the linear park, herbs and medicinal plants are planted to provide helpful information and to educate the residents about the many uses of the plants. The visible random lines of the flooring pattern further strengthens the concept of tree roots in the design. As the tower building represents the main trunk of a tree, feature trees and creepers were planted to represent the symbiotic plants on the tree trunk and branches.

The Leafz Sungai Besi

Adapting green practices, The Leafz merges green technology and art to create a serene and healthy environment for its residents. The Leafz is a breakthrough in design and functionality, adapting the marvels of technology in the many aspects of our lives. Imagine a home that indulges your every whim and notion. From world-class facilities that are available right at your doorstep, to breath-taking landscape visual experiences. The landscape concept is inspired by the morphology and anatomy of leaves, of which the midrib and venation are highly emphasised with simple lines and textures. The entrance structure is designed as the vein of the bird nest fern, with the carriageway design highlight resembling the veins of a banana leaf. A linear park, designed in the shape of a midrib of a leaf, is an elevated boardwalk, with the arrangement of shrubs in a vein-like position. Both ends of the boardwalk have two small leaf plazas. The 50-metre infinity lap pool at level 28 overlooks the city skyline. A leaf shaped viewing deck with a glass floor in the sky gym, illuminated in blue, makes the sky deck an outstanding feature from afar. Return to nature and indulge in a flourishing life at The Leafz.

The Address Bukit Jambul

Far from the ordinary, yet near to everything else. The Address is strategically tucked in a quiet corner of a township of Bukit Jambul. The concept for the entire development was driven and inspired by architecture of the natural world - ‘the habitat of Beavers’. The landscape design focus is on the creation of an ideal, peaceful and sustainable living space, surrounded by expansive sky, lush greenery and serene waterfalls. Learning from industrious beavers, the entrance gateway holds tangibly patterned metaphors, much like a magnificent beaver dam, and serves to welcome and secure access to the living spaces beyond. Central water bodies, comprised of a swimming pool, children’s pool, and jacuzzi area, are implicitly interpreted as water banks with vibrant activities conducive to life. Existing exclusive boutique architecture, interpreted as a number of beaver lodges, have been built ecologically on the adjacent shore. The circulation and connectivity of the spaces resembles the slides and channels that beavers make to enter and leave the water. The swimming pool is designed to be a natural formation within the ecosystem. It resembles ecosystems such as wetlands which are created as a result of the construction of a beaver’s dam. A raised terrain along the edges of the pool, slows runoff water from the pool and reflects the natural formation of the local ecosystem.

Ameera Residence Mutiara Heights

Ameera Residence at Mutiara Heights is a serene lifestyle development with lush landscaping; a home where one can breathe in fresh air and revel in the bounty of mother nature by being close to the Jeloh Forest Reserve. This exclusive residence is surrounded by gardens and recreational spaces on the ground level. Being a site located in a quarry area, most of the granite used has been recycled as wall fencing, with the landscape design blending perfectly with the newly developed Mutiara Heights neighbourhood. At Ameera, each corner of the landscaped space is where you can recharge and rejuvenate. Here, landscape design is allocated for different activities at various parts of the development to cater for both active and passive recreational needs. To further enhance the simplistic feel of urban living, the application of lines and ovals punctuate numerous locations within the landscaped plaza or green corridor and offer an interesting visual treat and create interesting functional spaces within.

Dedaun

Sky High Living Jalan Ampang

The name Dedaun, which means ‘leaves’ in Malay, was specially conceived to reminisce and to celebrate the idyll and serenity of the lush gardens of the 70’s; a time when the urban sprawl we take for granted today was as yet unknown. Dedaun is a low rise development of 38 limited edition luxury residences intimately set in two interlocking L-shaped blocks, encircling an inner courtyard. The design translates the concept ideas into forms and through careful selection of suitable hard and softscape materials, evokes the image of a bygone era. As such, the organisation of its landscape spaces emphasises the front garden experience of the period, while also creating private garden escapes as necessary antidotes for today’s urban living. A traditional red clay brickwork courtyard that is in-laid with grass enhances the nostalgic feeling of yesterday. At nightfall, lighting niches built into the brick wall provide a romantic rustic charm. In keeping with the concept, 70’s style garden swings have been specially fabricated for the playground area. A fun timber tree house is built around an Andira surinamensis tree to complement and strengthen the character of the development.

A Treasure Trove Singapore

A Treasure Trove is a unique development that consists of modern apartments as well as conserved colonial villa as a clubhouse in the heart of Punggol New Town, Singapore. With its lush green oasis, the main landscape deck sits high above the ground, elevated like a green island with a number of gardens developed for principle use and enjoyment by local residents. The development was designed with a rich nature and the majority of the green spaces planted with drought tolerant tropical plants that add distinctive colours and textures to the gardens. Relax within a beautifully landscaped, resort-like environment, complete with various pool seatings; this area is specifically designed to encourage interaction among residents and has become an important social area for many. The pools are designed as magnificent facilities as well as to be focal points when viewed from all levels of this property. The main focus of the entire development is the Colonial-Malay Kampong Style Villa, ’Maltida House’. It has been innovatively conserved and converted to a clubhouse. One of the key components of the design are the Malay motifs and patterns on the paving and ceiling that reflect the colonial style external facade.

SkyPod Residences, a luxurious 4.85-acre serviced apartment development with full condominium facilities, heralds a new age in luxury, leisure and discerning lifestyle. As the name implies, the Pod is a seed, a symbol of new beginnings. Nature’s elements of Sky, Water, Earth & Plants, in combination, form a ‘Cycle of Living’. Seeds are symbolic of hope, representing the life source of nature, clearly visible in every element planted in the landscape design. To name a few, the unique Giant Trellises Pod, Nap Pod, Hanging Pod, adjacent to the Olympic-sized swimming pool with Spa Beds. Green linkages created in between the existing business park and new luxury serviced apartment provide a centralised leisure & lifestyle pod to complete the ‘Live, Work & Play’ experience.

Westside II

Sky High Living Desa ParkCity

Visually iconic and modern, Westside II offers a branded residence sanctuary at Desa ParkCity. It brings new meaning to the human experience of nature. What separates Westside II from basic conventional condominiums is the theme of ‘Two Parks-Two Acres-Two Icons’. The landscape design distinguishes two important iconic landscape features which exemplify, with thoughtful consideration, the human experience within the tight constraint of two acres. Two tree house structures are built at the facility decks while the two tier decking structure encourages a free flowing play space below. This dual level system adds vertical drama to the horizontal plane landscapes, while seamlessly connecting both tree houses together with a unique timber sky bridge, allowing 360 degree views difficult to find elsewhere. The second iconic feature is the organically curved Water Moat, located at the ground floor. The shape is inspired by the flowing essence of water, moulded uniquely around the high columns as to cleanse the air and reduce micro-humidity. In addition, the Water Moat serves as an outdoor lounge room for all to enjoy as the sensual planting and refreshing splash of water energises the senses of a secluded and private home environment.

Icon Residence Mont’ Kiara

Icon Residence is a luxury serviced apartment located in Mont’ Kiara, Kuala Lumpur. Three residential towers, inspired by vernacular Mediterranean style architecture, rise up from a series of receding landscape podiums and transform into an intricate, multi-layer façade. From the iconic architecture façade interspersed with gardens and water features and integrating elements of sun, sky and scenic greenery, the landscape unfolds into a 3-dimensional lattice of terraces, gardens and living spaces. Each terrace sits on a platform with its own functionality and unique garden space. Unified hardscape finishes and plant palette thread through the terraces to create a cohesive whole.

Imprinted with tranquil courtyards, linear parks and a deck for recreational facilities. Due to the architecture, the development is punctuated by a series of green corridors acting as breezeways and heat swales.

The valley site of Debunga Residensi is surrounded by the natural hilly slopes of Kemensah forest hills. Hidden as a jewel among the rich flow of refreshing waterfalls and brooks, its surrounding elements have become a signature inspiration in designing the Central Park landscape. A 440m length linear park becomes the centre-grid composition, knitting the semi-detached homes and cul-de-sacs together. The north and south axis park features a clubhouse, connected by water linkages in the form of canals, cascades and springs, reflective of Kemensah waterfalls. The park ingredients are akin to a painter’s eye with a show gallery showcasing a collection of surrounding landscape wild flowers that bloom and bud in line with the hill environment. This design is also reminiscent of Monet’s garden paintings.

Lepironia Gardens Setia Eco Glades

Lepironia Gardens, located at the south of the development, was inspired by Lepironia articulata, a slender reed which prevents erosion by stabilising the edge and base of ponds and waterways. It is able to absorb toxins and heavy metals in the water. Lepironia articulata is widely used in water quality and wetlands run-off management and for aesthetic purposes. The Lepironia Gardens were designed to encapsulate a sense of peace, calm and tranquility within the development. Thus, a fresh man-made waterway was carefully designed as the main attraction. The design enhances the value of the entire site by replanting original site vegetation partly from transplanted trees and wetland plants. Native resident fish were released into the completed waterways in order to create a balanced ecosystem. The Orchard Gardens are designed to ensure bird & insect integration with plants for food and nectar which invite butterflies who fly gently throughout this lush garden. The Lepironia Gardens were crafted with an eco-landscape approach, which inpires human integration with nature. This approach is not only focused on the importance of conservation and preservation but also creates awareness among the community about the need for a sustainable environment.

The garden is designed with a rich bio-diversity of flora and herbs to showcase the advantages of plants for health and medicinal purposes. The garden emphasises ecologically friendly features via the introduction of thick under-growth plants. These protect the soil surface from erosion, create permeable pathways, and, at the same time, create a sanctuary for small wildlife. The improved space also increases safety via well-lit walkways for urban dwellers to use at all times.

Setia Alam Urban Park Bandar Setia Alam

Nestled within the commercial development of Setia Taipan and the highrise residential development, this 1km long urban park provides a space for the community to meet and relax and also partake of the green network and the waterways which connect to other community hubs. Setia Alam Urban Park is designed to be a part of the green finger network and waterways of Bandar Setia Alam. This environmentallyfriendly development is in line with MASMA (Manual Saliran Mesra Alam Malaysia) requirements with unsightly concrete monsoon drains being replaced with calm waterways, wide, gentle slopes, and meandering earth swale, as well as wetlands. Each area can be utilised for landscape and recreational purposes. Designed for both passive and active use, the park is sectionalised, with an open plaza in the centre. Towards the south east are the play areas, terraces, a basketball court and exercise stations, while towards the north-west sector are the wetlands, which is part of the water retention pond, designed to provide walking trails, pavilions, and be a sanctuary for local wildlife.

Rumah Tinggi Eco Park Singapore

The Rumah Tinggi Eco Park design takes advantage of its natural setting with the existing topography, vegetation and wildlife creating an environmental themed garden. It promotes eco-friendly design approaches by retaining trees on site and minimising the disturbance to the existing terrain. The key design concept here is to maintain the site character while enhancing the function and quality of the park. A variety of facilities, which include fitness stations, playgrounds, shelters, picnic lawns and seating decks have been introduced along the track to create opportunities for community and family bonding. The activity areas allow users of different ages to interact with nature while pursuing their leisure activities. On environmental features, the rain garden at the entrance plaza serves its purpose for filtration with the provision of a bio-retention pond underneath. Plant species are selected with care as priority is given to those which require minimal maintenance. Thus, native varieties are preferred. A wide variety of planting is selected to create the ambience of a ‘forest’ within the urban context of residential and industrial areas.

Metamorphosis Park Setia Eco Cascadia

Metamorphosis Park is a 15 acre park which uses the butterfly life cycle as its core concept. The elements are reflected in the landforms in the soft and hard landscape. Butterflies are unique creatures, astounding people with the miraculous parts of their short life, known as metamorphosis. The essentiality of butterflies are integrated into the design of the whole park with the shape of the lakes resembling an adult butterfly. The stages of the butterfly life cycle are reflected in the design concept of the pavilions, shelter, walls & plaza. The water bodies, used as retention ponds for water catchment, transform into recreational lakes for the local community. This adds aesthetic value to the entire development. The lakes, with their butterfly shape, further strengthen the concept and are visible from higher ground.

Wetland Park Kota Kemuning

Kota Kemuning Wetland Park is approximately 3km long and occupies some 27 acres of land along the frontage of Kota Kemuning. The design approach applies value engineering to a proposed concrete drain, transforming it into a free-form natural retention-based wetland system. The wetland system incorporates a series of inter-linked open channel ponds with adjacent flood and retention plains that traverse the power lines, where pylon cables are located for drainage reserve, gas line reserve and local authority requirements. There are minimal man-made interferences, and nature takes its course by allowing and supporting biomass interaction among the vegetation and animals. The wetlands is now a major wildlife sanctuary. Proposing an approach that was both economically and environmentally sustainable allows a desirable win-win scenario to take place.

The Perdana Botanical Garden, formerly known as Taman Tasik Perdana, or Lake Gardens, is situated in the Heritage Park of Kuala Lumpur. It has always been a part of the green lung of the city and has a history of over a decade. Originally created as part of a recreational park, this space is planted with collections of tropical plants and has been rehabilitated and turned into a Botanical Garden. The gardens not only house botanical collections but also features that give visitors the feeling of being in a tropical rainforest, despite being in the middle of a bustling metropolis. The first phase involved the rehabilitation of the main core of the garden and the addition of various collections and features. The garden is unique in that it has the elements of a show garden, the ambiance of a tropical rainforest, and the serenity of a getaway in the middle of a city. The second phase of the transformation brings in the necessary elements of a Botanical Garden, the Herbarium, the Library and Visitor Center. Other areas, such as the Orchid Garden, and the Hibiscus Garden, will be enhanced and rehabilitated at the same time.

River of Life Heritage Quarter Kuala Lumpur

The River of Life Master Plan creates a framework for transformation, regeneration and growth by preserving Kuala Lumpur’s past with a renewed outlook for the area through waterfront revitalisation. The River of Life Early Works Package (EWP) is part of the first phase of the larger River of Life Master Plan that aims to regenerate 10.7 km of the Klang and Gombak Rivers. With a focus on water cleaning, river master planning and city beautification, the River of Life project aims to create desirable places with quality streetscape elements that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing. This design aims to increase pedestrian movement through shaded streets that open up for pedestrian use during events. In addition, traffic congestion is eased through rationalised bus circulation. A focus on water sensitive urban design in the streetscape and landscape helps to restore the environment, and mitigates flooding through improved localised drainage. The project covers Heritage Quarter, in the heart of old China Town, along High Street (now known as Jalan Tun H.S. Lee). The project further demonstrates conservation efforts while activating a previously underutilised area. Urban infill throughout the district activates the pockets of dead space around the highly attractive tourist areas, creating more contemporary nodes such as art installations, informative storytelling signage, and a renewed streetscape, creating a place which connects landmarks, reveals heritage and provides a place for the local community, whilst celebrating Malaysian identity; past, present, and future.

Rustic architecture with pristine greenery, evening skies woven with colour, and a deep sense of serenity reserved exclusively for hotel guests. Located a stone’s throw away from the Ayer Keroh interchange, Philea Resort & Spa, Melaka, is the first and largest log cabin resort in Malaysia, consisting of 66 units of log houses with 180 rooms, 19 suites and 2 villas. The site is located in a charming valley, complete with a multi-tiered terrain, surrounded by an existing rubber estate. As a result of location, the project was designed to flow seamlessly along the undulating contours of the land. Water elements abound in the center of the site due to the nearby creek. As well as being a natural feature, the stream’s other purpose is to harness the ground water and manage the overflow discharge during times of heavy water flow. The selection of finishes and materials plays an important role in creating the design intention, which has a more rural feel. Natural elements which blend with the natural setting of the environment have been carefully placed in the creation of the hardscape elements. In addition, the plant selection is based on a 50-50 ratio of common and rare species in order to instill surprise and inspiration for the visitor.

161 Eclectic M.

Country Heights, Kajang 161 Eclectic M., a country home features a fusion of Mediterranean and Malaysian landscape, giving rise to a new lexicon in Landscape Architecture – The Eclectic Malaysian Landscape. Materialising a home owner’s dream landscape has always been the utmost priority, and now, there is a home set within tropical landscape that keeps a pinch of a Mediterranean feel to compliment the architecture. The landscape shall be part of their home, giving them comfort and a nostalgic memoire. Water and life are the core ideas of this landscape with the house embraced by lush native vegetation, with a small creek running from the rear garden to the front of the house. As a result, the ecological system has been restored with a strong emphasis on sustainability. Old furniture, railway sleepers, cast iron grilles, and old balustrades are salvaged to create intricate landscape details and used as ornamental features. The material palette gives rise to a rusticated look to the landscape.

Legoland Malaysia Resort Iskandar

LEGOLAND® Malaysia is the first of this brand theme park in South East Asia, covering over 75 acres in the heart of Iskandar, Malaysia. The park opened in September 2012, and caters to a projected annual attendance of over 1.2 million people. The overall planning and concept for LEGOLAND® Malaysia follows the successful model for LEGOLAND® Deutschland. The planning and design ensures easy accessibility for guests to navigate throughout the park. An adaptation of the existing concept design and the detail of LEGOLAND® sits within the local context while maintaining its essence as a family theme park. LEGOLAND® Malaysia’s site context, with its undulating topography, was a challenge for the design to ensure accessibility for normal and disabled guests. The existing conditions drove the master plan to respond in a dynamic yet sensitive manner. The master plan is designed to nestle into the existing hill slope while focusing on guest comfort as they move through the park. With LEGO brands, knowledge of toys and manipulation has made family activities more fun and comes with educational value. All attractions and features are enclosed together with lush green surroundings and well planned circulation where all the areas are physically and visually grasped. The settings of the park features are well planned in a circular loop with LEGO models showing the prominent city in the world, called ‘Mini Land’, being a centerpiece of the attraction.

Playground Set Aloft The Alice Smith School Kuala Lumpur

The Alice Smith School holistic approach towards academic education and social development gave rise to a new master plan to enhance the infrastructure; both the buildings and the landscape. The Alice Smith School is situated on the slopes of Petaling Hills, Kuala Lumpur. This British International School provides a conducive environment for physical and cognitive learning and development. The landscape has become a place for fun and learning, and adds a new identity for the school and community. The success of the landscape lies in the concept of compartmentalising small spaces to create a smooth flow of functional spaces along the school entries. The landscape sets the playground aloft on higher ground, on the roof, and exploits horizontal spaces for fun and function. Compartmentalisation for full utilisation of space is the key aspect of this landscape design with all spaces strung together with a simple language of planting design.

eZe3 MBI

Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh eZe3 or Easy Electronic Tree Data Collection is an innovation of Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh on tree inventory and data collection for the city. Over the years, issues such as the enforcement of tree protection have become difficult due to lack of information about tree data in the city. Conventional tree data collection consumed longer time, manpower and paper work. This has caused the information of tree data to be unavailable to the public. Through the invention of GPS and mobile technology, a new user-friendly app is here to execute the data collection and tagging of each tree using a ‘Geo Tagging’ method from the location, updated real time. The information is then displayed in the form of GIS (Geographic Information System).

14 Beach Villas Datai, Langkawi

The Datai, Langkawi, is a five-star resort hotel, situated on a ridge within lush rainforest by the sea. The resort design is extremely sensitive to the fragile environment in which it is set, and demonstrates how a fairly large intervention can be built to intertwine with tropical rainforest. Thus, the new extension of this 14 villa project, carries the same design philosophy. The extension project of the 14 villas is perceived as building a niche stay that brings people closer to nature and its beauty, surrounded by rainforest and beach. Preserve the flora and fauna, bask in the tranquility, and the revealed mystery of a 10 million year old rainforest and be captivated by up-close encounters with rare wildlife species such as flying squirrels and colugos. Strewn over 750 hectares, nestled in the very heart of the rainforest, the rustic stand-alone villas lure visitors with an intimate nature experience. The philosophy of the landscape study is to ensure the design is in line with nature, promoting symbiosis between the forest ambiance and villa landscape setting. The importance of preservation and conservation of the existing rainforest and other natural resources is the greatest asset for the development.

River of Life Master Plan

Kuala Lumpur

The River of Life Master Plan aims to rejuvenate and revitalise the Klang & Gombak Rivers and surrounding neighbourhoods of Kuala Lumpur to bring people back to the riverfront. The framework for the River of Life Master Plan is based on the principles of Connect, Activate, Revitalise, Enliven (C.A.R.E.) which re-establish the lost connections of urban fabric with the river as well as from one district to another; the goals, objectives, and initiatives proposed all fall into one or more of these themes. Outlining a bold vision for development, River of Life unites the city physically, economically, and socially to make it the cornerstone of 21st Century Malaysia. Through connecting the urban core, enhancing the vitality of the city, preserving significant historic assets, encouraging new access to the waterfront, and establishing a regional asset, River of Life will become an harmonious resolution to the concerns of urban life in Kuala Lumpur.

MAJOR OPEN SPACES

GREEN CONNECTORS

Quality open spaces are fundamental to establishing the river as world class. The river forms the spine to a network of places and spaces of regional and local significance, with the surrounding areas creating the visual backdrop to the city and signalling different characters.

DISTRICT 2 TRANSPORT HUB

The open space network includes hubs of specifically identified natural resources or open space and manmade features or destinations that influence the development of the network.

DISTRICT 1 ECO VILLAGE

The initiatives and proposals in the masterplan will benefit from efficient and easy connection links. Connecting the river edge with the rest of the city fabric will be facilitated with green connections that provide attractive and comfortable pedestrian oriented routes that link to green open spaces or other destinations. Initiatives to form green connectors could lead to pedestrianised walkways, improved roads and those with integrated pedestrian walks. The proposal integrates a number of green connectors into the urban fabric easing accessibility and providing opportunity to the pedestrian to engage into the green network. Such initiative shall improve the pedestrian experience and promote internal connections, reducing vehicular traffic and making destinations more reachable.

Tumpat Heritage Trails

Mohamad Muizzuddin Mohd Razani Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM)

The design strategy focuses on aspects of concern to establish heritage trails in Tumpat town centre. There are two types of heritage trails in the design; Informative Trails and Discovery Trails. • Informative trails tend to be passive, requiring the user to walk, or travel by other means, whilst gathering media information, or simply enjoy the experience around the Tumpat town centre. • Discovery trails are more active. They are particularly appropriate for younger people and family groups. Discovery trails rely on some sort of test in finding or using the information provided. For example, a discovery trail might provide the answers to a quiz where it is unlikely people could guess the answers without completing the observations on the trail.
