Developers who are quick to embrace changing market needs will do well to have additional green lungs that serve as an educational and sustainable spot for residents to thrive and spend quality time at while providing sustenance for less privileged persons in a sustainable community effort.
Developers: Forget the conventional garden with a house formula of conventional houses. Things have changed post lockdown and developers would do well to perhaps take a leaf of an example from Kebun Kebun Bangsar, the new benchmark of what makes an all-Inclusive neighbourhood attractive and viable.
The Movement Control Order (MCO) and extended Restrictive Movement Control Order (RMCO) was not something welcomed by denizens of the city. However, it did yield some expected gems. And one of them was the realisation of priorities.
Overworked denizens of the city were forced to pause to reflect on their lives – given the wheels of capitalism having grinded to a sudden halt. And, while many took to cooking or baking – a rare few took to creating the means to having their own edible garden. One such far-sighted individual is renowned landscape architect Ng Sek San, who is no stranger to the landscape scene – having undertaken a select few prominent projects for blue chip developers here and abroad. Ng also has to his credit – transformed almost a good part of the forest at Serendah into a never attempted before jungle type resort devoid of walls almost –n — where huge trees act as a backdrop wall against the canvas of a forest setting.
Putting his Midas touches to an abandoned piece of land snaking uphill at a secluded hilly spot in Lucky Garden, Ng has transformed a useless piece of land into a masterpiece for city folks — this time, an endearing farm of sorts which Bangsarians can call their own, whimsically and endearingly named as Kebun Kebun Bangsar.
