LEAD Consultants were engaged as Landscape Architects for 8 Albatross Avenue, a new duplex development in Mermaid Beach. The project required the lodgement of Development Approval and Operational Works applications with the City of Gold Coast. The landscape design included softscape and hardscape treatments to both the ground floor and the roof deck. The design incorporated high-quality materials and finishes and used a hardy native, tropical plant palette to create a range of spaces with visual variety and effective screening/softening of the built form.

The proposed development was constrained by its lack of available areas for deep planting and narrow site. The project required imaginative approaches to ensure effective screening and amenity within the landscape were maintained while complying with Council conditions.

Our Approach

The careful use of the available space enabled the design to achieve effective screening and allowed for the creation of spaces for sanctuary and relaxation within the landscape.
