The landscape concept for this Thematic Landscape is based on Islamic calligraphy, which is linked to a cosmic theme of har­mony and order. Associated with the brand identity of the development, this calligraphy becomes a three-dimensional insignia that residents and guests discover when look­ing out of their windows. On the ground level, the landscape is envisioned as a prestigious landscape that houses a vari­ety of unique garden-scapes. The garden elegantly combines natural features and geometric forms in a series of artificial land­forms, waterways, bridges, and sculptures.
