A Commercial Development with an impactful and robust landscape design.
The public domain seeks to create a unified and seamless relationship between the public space and new development with the landscape interwoven throughout. As the trellis rises from the street to envelop the building, so too does the planting with a climbing species directly under steel cables.
A shared street approach, integrating cars within a pedestrian-focused environment to create a robust and deliberately compressed carriageway via the use of a brick-paved ground plane; a tapestry that’s both beautiful and purposeful.
The use of a single type of brick, changes in pattern to keep drivers and pedestrians alert, extending from Lexington Drive and up to the lobby entrance. The unified ground plane of brick allows the entry to speak as one; pedestrians, patrons and vehicles share the space, making connections that are interesting and equal.
The Level 4 hosts generous communal terraces complete with places to sit and relax and feature planting to add interest and delineate spaces. Shade amenity is created through small canopy trees in the landscape. When viewed from above, the communal open space provides seasonal interest with the changing colour and foliage.
