Oro Apartments is a luxury residential development, which provides a high-quality living experience, on the Esplanade directly opposite the Broadwater in Biggera Waters, Gold Coast.
The landscape of this project reflects the contemporary Architectural style with a sub-tropical species palette. This enables integration between the apartments and their context as well as providing a cool and refreshing environment for users and residents, which in turn strengthens the sense of community ownership of the development.
Broad leaf shade loving species and vigorous overhead climbers assist in creating a landscape that softens the harsh built form typically experienced in apartment living and creates an attractive lush environment that is easy to maintain.
Hierarchical vegetation at various heights creates a holistic and submersive experience of the environment for its occupants.
The ground floor forecourt of this development is a welcoming entry space enhanced by decorative contemporary pavement finishes and furniture. This contemporary character is reinforced with signature coastal species such as ‘Screw Pine’ (Pandanus pedunculatus) and 'Pigface' (Carpobrotus glaucescens) spreading groundcover.
The landscape of these types of developments is becoming ever more highly regarded as residential density is intensified within our urban areas and outdoor public space is concentrated. The presence of well-designed landscapes and open space components within projects is related to the health and well-being of users, thereby increasing their importance in creating high-quality living environments.
