Project Highlights

Developed concept and detailed design of the landscape to achieve relevant Council approvals and successfully deliver the project from the concept phase through to construction completion in early 2019.
A sophisticated and cohesive landscape design achieved through acknowledgment and use of the architectural language of the project and utilisation of high-quality materials and finishes to create a unified design.
Extensive collaboration with the client and architect to deliver a high-quality outcome working within the limitations of the site and Council conditions.
LEAD Consultants were engaged as Landscape Architects for 45 Petrel Avenue, a development located in Mermaid Beach close to the Nobbys Beach community centre. The development involved the construction of a two storey Duplex, replacing the existing beach shack and required the lodgement of Development Approval and Operational Works applications with the City of Gold Coast.

The nature of the development and narrow site limited the areas for deep planting which required creative solutions to achieve effective screening and amenity within the landscape. High standards of design were maintained while ensuring council conditions were met to deliver the project.

Our Approach

Efficient and creative design principles were applied to the available space which enabled the project to achieve effective screening and allowed for the creation of areas for sanctuary and relaxation within the landscape. Planting on key viewlines and feature planting areas to the frontage allowed the potential for exposure to landscape within the site to be maximised.
