The project involved working with a team of architects and consultants
to aesthetically design all the small, medium, large and extra large open
spaces in and around a large private residence. Go big! was our concept. The
lines of the architectural components of the building were projected into the
open areas and the various amenities like water bodies & cascades, seating
decks, gardens & walkways, stepped lawns & decorative walls aligned with
The clearly defined concept dictated the design gestures, forms, delineation of various uses and the movement was choreographed through the spaces. The result is orderly & cohesive hardscape areas softened with plants; its with plants, probably more than any other element of landscape design, that the infinite variation and fickleness of nature is most evident. Hence the planting scheme involved variations in the form of hedge planting, border planting, shading with huge floral trees, flower beds and ground covers planted on a large scale and accent planting to highlight special personal spaces.
