GARDENS @ BUNDUSAN / by Kenneth Tan


An unwavering belief in the healing power of nature conceived a tropical utopia in the middle of an arid commercial township. From the gate entrance to the last pillar, the Gardens intends to engulf itself in vegetation.


Such lushness is achieved by the integration of several nylon string walls sided by planter boxes throughout the public areas of this 29-floors condominium. These nylon “curtains” facilitate the upward growth of climbing and creeping plants, and provides shade and light diffusion.


A spacious elevated garden deck of more than 1 acre is the central oasis here. The 50-metre pool, gym, canopied cabanas, and a BBQ dining area is surrounded by palm and bamboo trees, manicured lawns, zen-inspired gardens and a trellis walkthrough. Such a generous amount of lushness and spaciousness only reflects the abundance of Kota Kinabalu’s natural environment.

2 layouts are offered to prospective residents – Type A measuring 982 sq ft and Type B at 848 sq ft. Both give 3 rooms and 2 baths. Full sized windows give a heightened sense of space, and open dining and living areas allow for flexible adjustments according to the resident’s tastes and flair.
