Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia
Herries Office Park is a two stage corporate office precinct in the heart of Toowoomba, Queensland.
Demartini Fletcher developed this office block in the heart of Toowoomba. The project consisted of renovation of a building on the Herries Street frontage and a new office block to the rear.
Key elements of the landscape architectural design were the inclusion of new advanced Date Palms (Phoenix canariensis) along the Herries Street frontage.
Their distinct form establishes a strong presence and character for the area. Reinforcing this character and identity through replication of this species further strengthens the landscape character and amenity of Herries Street.
Pavement bands reflect the ‘blade’ wall architectural character-defining elements. This provides continuity in the design between building and landscape.
Their visual impact and contrast provide a feature forecourt to the building. Other hardworks elements include feature galvanised SHS screens, planters and outdoor seats.
