IO’s design for the KL Gateway is envisioned to be a peaceful green oasis mixed residential and retail development in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The heart of the project is an outdoor courtyard surrounded by a series of garden spaces. The courtyard is designed to be a public room attracting people from the surrounding neighbourhood and city. The ring binds the courtyard to a surrounding retail mall and becomes a gathering spot for the entire mixed use complex. The roof of the ring becomes an outdoor jogging trail and garden for the surrounding residential towers.
