Online PR News – 29-June-2012 – London – The landscaping design specialists Randle Siddeley are proud to announce that their portfolio of clients now includes three of Hong Kong’s most prestigious and established residential property developments.
The Kadoorie Estate
Following a recent trip to China, Randle SiddeleyLandscaping has been commissioned by the Kadoorie Trust to re-energise the Kadoorie Estate on Kowloon. Developed originally in 1931 on a bare hillside by the Hong Kong Engineering & Construction Co., the estate is renowned as one of the most illustrious places to live in Hong Kong, especially given the fact that detached houses are something of a rarity. The landscaping is tired and in need of a cutting edgelandscaping designmasterplan which incorporates a new planting strategy alongside a sense of modernity that complements the charming colonial properties.
Located in ‘Cyber Village’ on Hong Kong Island, Bel Air comprises multiple towers largely built by London architects Foster + Partners between 2005 and 2008. The brief to Randle Siddeley was to re-invigorate the communal gardens and water features to give this Chinese development a more sophisticated and European feel, while still working with the colourful native species in the landscaping and planting design
Living space in Hong Kong is at a premium given the vertical nature and high density of the residential accommodation in such a small area. Randle Siddeley’s landscape designstrategy therefore needs to maximise all possible outdoor space to create a real sense of landscapinghorizon and provide an extension of the interior for the inhabitants’ entertaining and recreational use. Shade is another important factor to consider for landscaping architects working in Hong Kong as the tropical climate can reach high temperatures with stifling humidity during several months of the year.
