Common Areas: Naturalistic Gardens: Shared Social Space
Managing your estate's common area and using it as a shared social space?!
Activating and sharing of common space can be tricky but we had envision it as a beautiful thing when people of like mindedness comes together.
Creating a sense of arrival, entering into a entrance plaza of one of the unit make over.
Won't anyone use such a beautiful garden space at night? ;)
Taking a trip down memory lane...When the world is still in black and white...
Uneven pavement with exposed tree roots
Bareness and compacted surface and algae
Concrete service sumps exposed
Poorly laid pavings to the apartment blocks
Where tripping is a norm to residents....
Where common spaces are ignored and seems useless to many....
Residents can now used the space more than merely walking but using it as their extended entertainment space.
Take a walk in the botanics....
When it comes to night....it proves to be a winner to get people together to use it
A 2m setback common space is now a shared social space with a unique garden when residents begin to take ownership and decide to do more.
We are proud to come this far to see what we envision comes to pass. Enjoy the garden and thankful for all the trust and hospitality during this project. ;)
