Gardenside (Residential Wing) / Underground passageway interior design, gate design

Our goal was to realize a residential environment that, while sandwiched between commercial zones facing out onto the park and town, would preserve privacy, be composed and dignified in appearance and bask in verdant green surroundings. With the details of the Gardenside underground passageway gate and other components as well, we devoted close attention to creating a penetrating line of vision in a structure fully in harmony with the landscape.
