This master plan was inspired from the five elements of a Chinese garden: stone, water, structure, community and vegetation.
These five elements unite on the Bo Ao site to create a sense of community at many scales. The elements give form to the interconnected relationships between public and private, residential densities, green space, and circulation.
The program distribution, circulation connections, and site sensitivity strategy create an identity of place. The people-based and environmentally respected master plan is dedicated to providing a quality life style for the senior citizens in their "golden years."
