With those parameters, WOHA developed the concept of “sky villages”. 11-story neighborhoods oriented around communal gardens. Each sky village has 88 apartments sharing use of each high-rise garden, a scheme that encourages interaction among neighbors. Instead of enclosed hallways, sheltered balconies overlooking the garden provide access to all dwelling units and serve as shaded places for people to meet. Roof gardens at the top of each building and covered spaces at the ground floor offer a variety of outdoor places where both residence and public can socialize and enjoy the lush setting.
