Sea Flower Island
The highly desirable destination consists of interwoven tourism, residential, entertainment and recreational offerings that are unified in a “gardens of the sea” vision. Activity centers, architectural landmarks, cohesive detailing and public spaces reinforce the visitor experience. The design motif conveys the perceived emergence of emerald waves from the landscape, creating dynamic curving forms which visually enhance pedestrian engagement and serve as a connective element. Providing an intriguing contrast to island’s urban grid, uninterrupted green bridges link the central core with outer parcels to create a comprehensive public realm network of formal parks and plazas, natural open spaces, sustainable green environments, streetscapes and gateways Swhich blend the built and natural environment.

The conceptual landscape master plan refines vehicular, pedestrian and water based circulation systems to provide logical movement patterns and maximize walkability.
