LCSD BEST LANDSCAPE AWARDS FOR PRIVATE PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT 2022 – ONE KAI TAK (I) & (II)
URBIS is pleased to announce that ‘One Kai Tak – (I) and (II)’ won a Merit Award and an Environmental Efficiency Award in the Medium Scale Domestic Property (Site Area <20,000 – 2,000 sq.m.) category. URBIS undertook full hard and soft landscape design and implementation services for this luxury residential development by China Overseas Property Limited. The site lies in the heart of the urban redevelopment area of the former Kai Tak Airport and the twin lots were two of the first to be developed. The residential complex consists of two parallel lots separated by a street comprising a mix of high-rise towers, exclusive low-rise apartments and residential units. An important concept was the lack of podia in order to promote a ground level ‘garden’ feel for residents and achieve a seamless transition with the highly pedestrianised surrounding environment. Landscape design elements include club house swimming pools, communal open spaces, focal water features and roof gardens. Ground Floor planting is generous with trees, shrubs, climbers and lawns creating communal gardens with seasonal variety and richness, promoting biodiversity within the new urban area.
