THE EMPYREAN BAMBUSA
The Royal Floria Empyrean Bambusa Garden gives dramatic feelings and mood of nobility and grandeur.
A sky garden is believed to be a symbol of power and dominance of one space towards the land and the air. Thus, by bringing the Bambusa sp. back to action, we would demonstrate the power of the nature through the ground and the elevated tapestry of hue, the lilium, sp. at high above the ground level mesmerizing aesthetic views.
The garden design helps to improvise the everlasting lifestyle of the community into much holistic approach of healthier, responsive and powerful neighborhood activities with perfect combination of robust hardscape and energetic softscapes.
This unique garden is actively using natural and recycled materials such wasted bottles, used can and also bamboo to give strong character to the site. Besides that, the exquisite garden also practiced innovative green technology and techniques as the garden adapted free fall-gravity of shallow and reflecting water features, natural plantings of softscapes, green anti-flood pavements and the use of natural elements to replace bold construction materials.
At night, the natural ambiance relighted the garden with an enormously cool lighting from the energy source to create sense of direction, mysterious and relaxing to the space. The lighting guides the user from lost as well as main attractions in their nightscape sight to bring the true colors of the Empyrean Bambusa Garden.
