Higher Education Park for Business, Government and Research and Development

TOWNLAND were awarded FIRST PRIZE in a Design Competition which led to this Design Consolidation Project in respect of the planning and design of the Core Area of the Higher Education Park. The area accommodated businesses, Government, Institution and community facilities, R&D facilities, offices and housing.

The function and locational attributes of the Core Area were set out based on TOWNLAND’s award winning conceptual plan for the Area. A host of land uses, development parameters, landscape features and the architectural style were proposed. Transport planning was undertaken and issues such as the connectivity of urban roads and the organization of vehicle and pedestrian flows were addressed. Urban design guidelines were also set out in order to provide standards in relation to, inter alia, the colour and texture of building materials, the architectural style, landscape features and building setbacks, as well as the open space criteria.Any required demolition of old buildings were dealt with sensitively and socio-economic interests were balanced with those of the environment.
