In the original winning proposal to an invited competition, WCWP strived for a delicate balance between privacy and openness, built-up forms and preserving nature. This concept was developed into an innovative masterplan, in conjunction with Foster + Partners, that affords maximum views towards serene Tolo Harbour while shielding against Tolo Highway traffic noise on the opposite side. Three-storey private houses are nestled in clusters overlooking the harbour or localized foci such as lap pools and lush landscaping. The planning challenge of providing over 1,200 up-market residential units on relatively small sites was made even more complex by stringent height restrictions.
