The concept of Precinct Arundina in Setia Eco Park was inspired by the hybrid Arundina orchid. The semi-detached homes in Precinct Arundina follows the colours schemes of this orchid in different phases. Phase 1’s (Plathea) colour theme followed the orchid’s white shade, while Phase 2 (Goldea) was coloured gold after the orchid’s hue. Phase 3 (Amethea) follows the orchid’s purple shade.
