Project Name: Kempinski Hotel
Cracknell undertook the landscape design and construction supervision of a minimalist Asian-style roof top recreation area for this 5-star hotel. Two rectangular swimming pools which include a wet and dry bar, feature a variety of edge treatments including timber decking, pebble-lined overflow and a distinctive black granite knife-edge. Creating further interest and variety are lounge and dining areas on various levels surrounding the pools which are flanked by trees and planting.
