Merit: Singapore Landscape Architecture Awards (SLAA), 2017
Foresque Residence Condominium was designed as an extension to the flora and fauna of the site, nestled in the grounds surrounding nature parks and reserves. The intimate relationship with the landscape creates a borderless synergy, between human-use and nature, as they learn to coexist both in the indoor and outdoor spaces. Retaining the essence of nature in its dense and lush planting, the landscape integrates a wide variety of trees, palms, shrubs and groundcovers to mimic the forest species, capturing the rich diversity of plant life in its surrounding. This inspirational forest and natural setting sets a fundamental element of the Foresque Residence experience; stimulating participants to connect with, and reflect upon the physical environment. The design and layout for the landscape is conceived to help protect the diversity of our natural environment as well as the processes that sustain it, while respecting site and the surrounding environments.
