Description

Urban design, architecture and the landscape for a water-oriented residential estate of 700 lots.

LFA were retained by Portland House to undertake masterplanning, urban design and landscape design and documentation at Waterside Estate in Melbourne.

The project features extensive restoration of Mordiallic Creek’s environmental quality, generating valuable environmental resources and habitat for indigenous fauna.

LFA prepared residential and street layouts and the urban design included water edge public domain works, bridges, walkways and broadwalks together with entry water features.

LFA also prepared architectural design guidelines for housing and designed and documented a kiosk/cafe to activate the foreshore area.
