TROP:Terrains+Open Space ：Situated on Sentosa Island, embraced by serene water on both sides, Seascape is an epitome of luxurious living, offering 151 exclusive waterfront homes amidst the mystic charm of its natural surroundings. Built by the sea, the development’s dramatic backdrop is just one of its many breathtaking aesthetic virtues. The elegant bold exterior is a reflection of the richness of the land and the magnificence of the sea. Inspired by Sentosa Cove’s nautical theme, the development features large balconies taking the form of hulls of a majestic vessel, allowing for the widest and the most spectacular views of the sea available in Sentosa Island.
Overall, the landscape area is divided into 2 parts by the architectures, which are linearly located along the middle of the site. Because of this uniques layout, each landscape area will have a totally different view from the other. On one side, the garden is next to the main road that runs along the public canal.On the other side, it is a very special space with an unobstructed view to the sea. With the site identity, we propose the idea of creating 2 different gardens, using 2 different waters as our main concept.
The first half of the garden is inspired by Sentosa's lush natural landscape with tropical trees and oceanic creatures. Our first move is to create a green buffer along the main road. Thick and dense shrubs are planted to significantly reduce the traffic noise from outside, and, at the same time, create a perfect.privacy for the residents inside. For pedestrians entering the property, they will be greeted by our special garden, “The Mangrove”. Inspired by the Mother Nature, we create the experience of walking through the Mangrove forest, with a pathway floating on reflecting ponds on both sides. If you look carefully, hidden underneath the water surface, a series of Bronze-casted Stingrays are secretly swimming .
The Main garden is also located on this side. It is a functional garden, which encourages and supports a variety of activities. The Great Terrace is also created to serve as the main hardscape area of the Main Garden. A simple wooden terrace is used for different functions, pool deck, party area, sun bathing, and even as a fire lane. Wood is our favorite material, because it does not feel too hard on such big space. Unlike stones, wood give us more softness. The wooden ribbon serpentines along the building facades, with some green buffering in between. The residents can walk bare feet throughout the project, which is such a great feeling.
The Mangrove’s inspired pool is created as the main landscape feature of the area. Emerald green ceramic tiles and lush tropical plants recreates the atmosphere of the local mangrove forest. Right next to the pool is the sunken garden. Functioned as the ventilation hole for underground parking, the sunken garden also plays a role of the transition space from basement to the landscape area. Great amount of sunlight is provided to lighten the dark space of the parking, giving both the sense of security and aesthetics to the small garden at the lower level.
