Reposting this great video by @beixin: Have you been here? 🍃 Designed by @woha_architects, PARKROYAL on Pickering is an iconic green structure with a hotel-in-a-garden design concept. With 15,000 square metres of sky-gardens, waterfalls, planter terraces and cascading vertical greenery, the lush foliage constitutes more than 200% of the total land area, a scale unprecedented in a built-up city centre. Pretty impressive, I’d say. Thank you for the lovely stay and the eco-tour, @bookingcom & @parkroyalpickering. 🌳 ...

Applecross is known for quiet leafy streets and neighbourhood charm. Inspired by its surroundings, this project does not eat up the leafy, green suburbs. The design keeps everything that is charming about Applecross - the Jacarandas dripping with purple flowers, the beautiful gardens, the backyards and barbecue pits – and envisages the building as an environment, creating gardens that extend into the sky and a seamless connection between exterior and interior.
.
@forbesresidences is designed as a three-dimensional “vertical suburb” that contains liveable, generous homes, shared facilities, common spaces within gardens, natural light and fresh air that weave throughout every level.
.
“Hanging gardens” drape the podium form and extend up the roof. They preserve the garden suburb quality, create greater privacy, frame views, and enhance sociability. They also perform meaningful environmental services that benefit not just the development site, but the district – reducing the heat island effect, reducing noise and dust, preventing glare, and providing a habitat for biodiversity.
.
When the Jacarandas are in bloom, the building will be covered in a canopy of vibrant purple flowers. The leafy greenery that characterises Applecross will flow seamlessly through the building, capturing the essence of the neighbourhood.

Forbes Residences is designed, not as a stand-alone urban object, but as a three-dimensional “vertical suburb” that contains liveable, generous homes, shared facilities, common spaces within gardens, natural light and fresh air that weave throughout every level.
.
The building reads as four organically shaped towers, connected via a series of sky gardens. It is expressed as a landscape, with residences akin to villas within that landscape and a façade inspired by the limestone formations around the Swan River.

Forbes Residences is a next-generation residential project, a development that generates greater amenity along with its higher density. It is a building that enhances its environment, enriching the quality of life for all.

This schematic design for a large mixed-use development in a prominent new site at the center of Shenzhen's Qian Hai Bay CBD envisions what future city centers could be.
.
Housing cultural spaces, expo and conference centers as well as residential units, hotels, retail and offices, the design takes a holistic approach by integrating the different programmes 3-dimensionally.
.
A lush, subtropical urban oasis rises up on the seafront, bringing nature back into the city that is dominated by concrete, glass and steel.
.
The biophilic design offers a healthy and relaxing environment that encourages people to be more aware of our climate crisis and inspires them to form a closer relationship with nature.
