Low Density Residential Community

To alleviate the concern about the visual impact on the existing landscape, the residential buildings are reduced to three storeys high. In addition, our Consultant, the Danish Architect BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, proposed a simple and effective way to blend the buildings into the natural landscape. Their concept was to follow the existing terrain with small stepped terraces generally following the existing topography and contour, on which the buildings are sit but stepping back on each level. In this way, the general “profile” of the hill slope is not materially altered. Together with suitable landscaping and choice of material and colour, the buildings can actually become “invisible” if so desired.
