This residential development is located in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. BHC – Creating Livable Communities developed this affordable housing project and engaged Citicene for Landscape Architectural services. 

The project has a central atrium space with individual communal areas on each level. The intention of the central communal area was to create a green atrium with landscape that extends between levels and throughout the internal entries of each apartment. 

The landscape also included: 

  • footpath streetscape works including approval and certification; 
  • lower level commercial outdoor spaces; 
  • a plant selection tolerant of indoor environments; 
  • irrigation throughout. 

Citicene delivered landscape architectural services from Schematic Design through to Certification and approval with Brisbane City Council.
