The Botanica Garden in Weinan is a mixed use development comprising 4,046 two, three and four bedroom apartments, a 15144.02sqm shopping mall and 4552.86sqm kindergarten on a 168788.92sqm site.
AWP’s concept is the creation of an ‘Oasis within the City’ inspired by the garden city concept of Singapore. The building form is highly contemporary in both style and materiality with the building massing broken down into a dynamic combination of frames and boxes to reduce the perceived size of the blocks. Careful planning allows for a varied façade configuration without the need to transfer services etc.
Landscape forms a continuous theme running throughout the project. Residents have the opportunity to utilize ‘green spaces’ ranging from small (S) pocket sky gardens, sky bridges (M) that link blocks together, large sky terraces (L) that occupy the roofs of the lower blocks and the (XL) greater masterplan landscape. These landscape spaces are expressed as accents on the façade to add a further layer of fenestration to the elevations of the blocks and enhance the ‘Oasis’ concept.
