Habit8 was engaged by Crown Group to prepare landscape DA documentation for a new iconic building in Green Square. Habit8 prepared a wide range of concepts that provided unique public and communal spaces for residents and visitors that align with the current vision for the Green Square area. The landscape provides an interactive and attractive space while preserving the neighbourhood character of the local area. Communal landscape areas are useable and provide excellent amenity for residents while body corporate planting contribute to softening the building façade, streetscape character and provide shade and screening to the parts of the development.
The landscape concept seeks to employ a design synergy between architecture and landscape. Feature planting will be positioned to reflect building forms and proposed themes for the building. Various species of canopy trees for communal courtyards and plazas have been selected in accordance with council’s DCP to give a unique character to the different streets and zones across the site, dependent on their function and aspect.
