Karwan Bazar Park created an opportunity to design a highly complex site within a heavily urban context. The park is at the crossroads of an eminent transformation of land use and the major complexity is that the site is changing towards a new dimension of the future. The space, which is a market area now, would soon become a commercial and business district in the future. The design concept was to provide the park with facilities that both the present and future can behold. For that reason, the primary intention was to integrate the diversity of land use with clear demarcation and distinctive sanctity. Existing secondary transfer station (STS) and temporary hawker placement were improved qualitatively along with the revitalization of green, flora-fauna and provision of basic public facilities. A public toilet is designed in the southeast corner of the park. Additionally, four group sitting areas with shading trees are designed on the western side of the park. The concept was to raise the edge of the park to keep it free from any encroachment and the sloped edge was planted with grasses designed to create a green vista.
