Macquarie Street Apartments are located on a tranquil reach of the Brisbane River in St Lucia and have recently undergone a substantial refurbishment. Citicene were engaged by Wadley Property Group to provide landscape architectural services for the landscape component of the project.
Landscape priorities for this project included:
- establish a contemporary character;
- consider existing structures such as existing planter boxes, podium levels and basements and design accordingly;
- propose species that require minimal maintenance;
- meet the landscape budget;
- utilize existing mature specimens within the design.
Citicene landscape architectural services included:
- establishing a species character through a schematic phase;
- producing documentation for tender and construction;
- tendering the landscape works to professional landscape contractors.
