How landscape might influence…

the way we camp

When we talk about camping, we probably know how camping might look like and the kind of outdoor roughing out experience in a pitched tent. In this second edition of landscape influence, we shall take a look at Tiarasa Escapes Glamping Resort in Pahang, Malaysia and how it has redefined camping in a glamorous way. This is also a project that won the ‘Project of the Year’ in the recent Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards 2019.

The landscape architecture consultant from WHZ Environmental Design project not only successfully fulfilled the client brief in design and implementation for the beautiful sets and settings of the resort as a luxurious escape in a kampong setting. More importantly the project won the heart of the jury panel for many other reasons.

One of it was how the landscape architects respected the environment, “touched the earth” lightly by fitting the buildings into the site with minimum disturbance but embracing the terrains, trees and rocks as part of the natural landscape. The landscape architects preserved the nature with finesse in crafts and beauty integrated, making both landscape and architecture services look seamless and effortless. This is one camping experience that would leave you pampered and totally immersed in nature.
