The landscape design at Ghanadha Island is for a palace complex on a private island in Abu Dhabi. The design is a reflection of the untouched mangrove forest surrounding the island. By use of native planting in organic clusters, the design aims at subtly complimenting the environment with minimal intervention. The Palace complex consists of four separate buildings with a large expanse of open sand between them. The landscape weaves through the open spaces as a ribbon of native grasses thus visually tying in the built masses. The vegetation gets denser around the buildings and then gradually fades out in a naturally scattered aesthetic as it meets the mangrove lined beaches.
