The landscape design for Help University i
s primarily about ‘space’ and ‘Place-making’
The concept is to design space as a “Green Catalyst” where an inspiring landscape environment setting can enhance creativity, facilitate social interaction, collaboration and the opportunity to generate new ideas, creativity and innovation. These landscape spaces create sanctuaries for congregation, recreation, imagination and quiet contemplation.
The idea of this project was to “bringing the inside out”— by reconnect the interior spaces of the building to the exterior while successfully knitting the site into the existing campus fabric. Different spaces are layered to create these transitional spaces, which the transitional spaces of ‘passage’ will adjust people’s mood while they move through these spaces and create visual surprises . Each space has its own individual character, where vegetation plays a leading role.
Sufficient greenery is achieved with green pockets allocated along the corridors, especially in front of the building doors to encourage people to go out and spend outdoor. The landscape embraces a serene forest feel with more than 60% of forest species was proposed, with different range of canopy layers, overlapping branches and leaves of the trees and tangled mixed of vegetation
