Careful consideration was made of role of this elevated area to create a healthy landscape with a sense of well-being and sensory stimulus across the space. The planting concept of lush verdures creates a central oasis with the timber walking track wrapping its way through the planter boxes and contemporary core- ten elements. Opportunities abound through choices for shorter and longer walks through the carefully managed spaces either opening out onto secluded seating nooks or accessing the district views from this garden in the sky.
