The Village at Bangsar South has been selected as one of the recipients of the prestigious MLAA (Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards) 2013. The honour award was presented in recognition of The Village’s excellent landscape design at the awards ceremony in April 2014 organised by the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia.
This is the second win for the 60-acre flagship Bangsar South development as The Central Park was also conferred an honour award in the professional category for excellent landscape design and planning at the MLAA in 2012. Both The Village and The Central Park landscape projects were designed in close collaboration with Urban Design Group Sdn Bhd, an established and award winning landscape architectural firm.
In creating a distinctive garden landscape, the design of The Village was guided by the principle of integration within the larger context of the Bangsar South development and the concept was derived from five green continuum spaces:
Waterfall Feature – a stunning gateway to the Bangsar South development with an environmental approach towards reducing urban heat and creating a soothing effect for pedestrians and motorists alike.
Entrance Beacon – designed with five main colours, which represent the five key components of Bangsar South and the five elements of fire, water, wood, metal and earth, that blend in harmoniously together with the verdant tropical foliage.
Street & Hidden Greens – lush street plantings with enclosed corners and green spaces which are perfect for al fresco dining and informal gatherings.
Elevated Terrace – a cosy lounge area next to a reflective infinity pool that overlooks the iconic Menara Telekom and the city skyline.
Village Plaza – surrounded by predominantly green spaces with artistically and functionally formed cobble stones, tall trees and manicured shrubs that feature welcoming landscape elements at the UOA Property Gallery.
MLAA recognises the best of practice and design in the landscape industry and celebrates the high standards achieved by landscape architects in Malaysia.
