ALUNAN PENANG, PENANG SOUTH ISLAND
An expected population of 300,000 was envisaged to enjoy a complete eco-system of beach and sea-fronting residential zones with smart lifestyle components balanced by the enhanced economics of high -tech industries with world class innovation parks and manufacturing centres.
The three islands linked by a central wildlife corridor gestured towards the hilly main land and introduced a canal series for the freshwater “Lake of Penang” with two new wharfs dedicated for fishermen connecting to new restaurants and spurring on the local robust cultural traditions and economy.

ALUNAN PENANG, PENANG SOUTH ISLAND
Penang’s vital relationship with water inspired the proposal as a symbolic relationship embodied through the concept of ‘Rhythmic Waves’ – the different rhythms of daily life from slowing down and tuning into the serene pace of nature, to the hustle and bustle of the heart of Penang’s identity. With 15km of shoreline diversification the design of the south coast aimed at symbolising the resilient, productive and leisure future of the island. Robust landscape layers were proposed for the design ideas competition with nature-based shoreline protection, bio-engineered living breakwaters with shellfish and shore stabilising vegetation to protect the life and safety of the new 4,500-acre Alunan Penang South Islands.
