O’Dea & Joynton Avenues, Zetland NSW
Prominence is a residential apartment building located at Victoria Park in Zetland where communal open space is limited to roof gardens and the podium. The main courtyard is on the podium above car parking and enclosed on four sides by five to eight storey buildings presenting a challenge for the landscape design.
The design approach involved an architecturally derived landscape to create spaces for resident use and an attractive pattern in views from upper building levels.
The solution is primarily a hardscape carefully balanced by planted elements. These include lightweight soil mounds for trees, irrigated grass and groundcover beds, planted pergolas as well as sculptures and a re-circulating water feature.
A Level six roof garden overlooks Tote Park, provides all year sun and is similarly an extension of the architectural fabric.
