Project Highlights

A collaborative approach towards landscape design with client and architect to deliver an integrated and considered design.
The utilisation of high-grade materials and finishes to create a stylish design consistent with the architectural language of the project.
LEAD were engaged to prepare a Statement of Landscape Intent for a new high-end residential development on Hedges Ave in Mermaid Beach. The landscape design included softscape and hardscape treatments to both the ground and first floors. The design incorporated high-quality materials and finishes and used a mixed hardy 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 the site had significant level change to be dealt with The project required imaginative approaches to ensure effective screening and amenity within the landscape along with sensitive design to the eastern interface with the dune areas and A-line.

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 including a sunken courtyard which the development looked onto for borrowed landscape. Use of endemic species and soft treatments to the beach/dune edge grounded the development within the surrounding beach environment.
