Description

Design and document the landscape for a water-oriented residential estate of 700 lots.

The restored Mordialloc Creek was the focal point for LFA’s design of the landscape for Waterways residential estate.  Close consultation with Melbourne Water enabled the restoration of the Creek’s environmental quality, generating valuable environmental resources and extensive habitats for indigenous fauna.

Extensive public domain areas were a prominent feature and the environmental theme of the project is reinforced through extensive native planting.

Water elements at the entry gateway, careful attention to landscape detail for bridges and boardwalks together with public art and signage, all enhance the quality of the public domain.
