Afinity是一个高端，多用途的发展项目，构成马来西亚依斯干达一个名为Medini的新城镇的一部分。 Medini的旗舰计划拥有超过2.0公顷的绿色空间，由Grant Associates设计，旨在通过治疗性园艺促进居民和游客的健康。
Afinity is a high-end, mixed-use development that forms part of a new urban township called Medini in Iskandar, Malaysia. The flagship scheme for Medini features over 2.0 hectares of green space designed by Grant Associates and aims to promote residents’ and visitors’ wellbeing through therapeutic horticulture.
All of Afiniti’s zones are distinct, with each converging on a shared green podium courtyard which sits upon the development’s three storey basement car park. The central podium Oasis is a three dimensional green space with landscape features on multiple levels including a central ravine, colonnade, water walls and overhead walkways.
The Oasis aims to provide a welcoming retreat where people with varying backgrounds can enhance their emotion and physical wellbeing by immersing themselves in nature.
The landscape design takes the structure and physiology of a fruiting tree as its inspiration for The Oasis. In this concept, the garden takes root and grows in harmony with the architecture. Shoots and stems (paths and linking walkways) create a three dimensional network across the space where fruits and pods (individual gardens) occur at key nodes. These nodes provide protective spaces for seeds and flowers (art, play and water features).
The key theme of multi-layered green space continues into the five zones in the form of sky-rise rooftop gardens and vertical planting. The planting palette uses many indigenous species to Malaysia and South East Asia that allow the gardens to be rooted in the ecological and local context. Plant species traditionally related to healing have been incorporated throughout the scheme.
The overall aim of the landscape concept is to interweave nature into the built environment, emphasise the interconnections of all life forms and enable people to experience the healing power of nature.

This Wellness Development is a 700,000 sqft mixed used development comprising a Serviced Apartment, Strata Residence, a Wellness Center, Wellness Retails and a Corporate Training Center planned on a 4.6 acres site.
