Shma designs sanctuary to relax amongst a crafted landscape


The Landscape design of The Zire Wongamat provides spacious relaxation spaces in different settings to its residents by extending the architectural lines of the residential buildings onto the landscape. These spaces caters for a variety of activities and functions such as beach terraces, landscaped garden, children’s play area and a multipurpose sports court and roof deck.



Furthermore, the continuation of these architectural ‘lines’ are not only used to define specific spaces/areas but also used to exaggerate and define the existing nature, the Lychee Tree which make use of the landscape design in order to characterize the tree as the soul of the project.





Overall, The Zire Wongamat provides a choice of cool and shady retreat by the sunny Wongamat beach of Pattaya.
