The podium is separated into two main zones one being for hotel guests the other for apartment residents. However, the sinuous design creates the impression of a single ‘garden or park’ landscape treatment when viewed from the towers, subtly the podium is divided into distinct zones which are segregated through a combination of level changes, terraces, planting and water bodies to obscure the separation between hotel guests and apartment residents.
The organic concept was created as a sinuous and flowing design with curving paths and terraces used to create the illusion of a larger space than actually exists. The design incorporates lounger terraces around the pools with intimate seating areas as places to discover set within a dense planting structure across the shared podium space.
