Master Planning

“Importantly, from our perspective as the Resort Developer, One Leisure understood all of the project’s priorities, both in terms of design and commercially in terms of budget restraint. Once they had taken on board our remit in the very broadest sense, they then embarked enthusiastically on the creative process of exploring and revealing new possibilities at every stage throughout the technical process and as the Resort Master Plan evolved .….. the results have been bold, innovative and dynamic…”

Jonathan Buchanan, CEO

One Leisure specialises in the creation and execution of hotel and resort landscape architecture as well as hotel and resort site planning services for the international luxury hospitality market. We create landscape designs and compositions that are responsive to the site and its location. Our knowledge encompasses full service design on projects as diverse as a steep sensitive hillside luxury hotel to a secluded intimate beachfront boutique to a decidedly hip social venue. Our resort designs take advantage of the site’s characteristics such as wind and light. We position landscape features that have a symbiotic relationship with the environment and create sustainable design relationships. One Leisure’s Landscape Architecture services extend to the design elements outside the site’s buildings such as circulation systems, landscape structural elements and special features, topography, pools and water features, and planting designs

Great resort landscape garden design should delight the viewer as well as support sustainable practices. At One Leisure creating gardens designs is like creating art. Our landscape garden design is expressed with flowing shapes, juxtapositions of textures and volumes, great sweeps of colourful plants, planting rhythms and repetition and a scope of sweet scented greenery. We combine these elements to create a palette of colour and fragrance to overwhelm the senses.

In the subsequent section, each hotel or resort project is presented though introductory text, a signature photograph and a series of sketches, diagrams and photographs that highlight the key features of each project.
