The landscape design (by Farrer Huxley) has been developed to respond to, and enhance, the sites natural surroundings and bio diversity.
A key principal of the landscape approach was to strengthen the link between landscape and architecture, with nature woven throughout the neighbourhood. The design celebrates the transition from urban to rural, creating a series of thresholds and hierarchy of community spaces. Planting is utilised to distinguish the streets with a mix of evergreen and herbaceous planting providing structure and colour interest throughout the year. The planting design creates a tapestry of patterns, forms, textures and colour.
