Hanoi (VNA) – Renowned Malaysian-backed developer Gamuda Land has won an honour award for the Property Developer category at the 8th Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards (MLAA) for its Gamuda Gardens, a residential precinct in Hanoi.

It has also earned the same title for two more projects in Malaysia – Kota Kemuning Wetland Park and High Park Sales Gallery.

Last year, the project won the Best Residential Development in Hanoi award at the 2015 Vietnam Property Awards.

Gamuda Gardens is one of four main parts of Gamuda City, a new mega city in the south of Hanoi. The 73-hectare township provides its residents with modern facilities and community-based amenities, including a recreational club, public and international schools, neighbourhood shops and kindergartens.

It was built upon five key pillars of design quality, community & amenities, safety & security, a healthy lifestyle, and sustainable values.

Its high-rise buildings and low-density garden homes are built around refreshing green parks and lush landscaping that offer a comfortable and tranquil experience.

More than 60 percent of the residential precinct’s area is covered with trees or dedicated to public buildings, said Director of Gamuda Land Vietnam Cheong Ho Kuan.

The landscape design of Gamuda Gardens is a work of Land Sculptor Studio (LSS), a group of designers from Thailand who have joined multiple projects in China, the Middle East, Singapore and Vietnam.

The annual Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards was founded by the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM) and sponsored by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA).-VNA
