We will be working closely with a dynamic and talented team of designers including UNStudio, Cox Architecture, Arup, and Junglefy to bring the green spaces proposed by the winning design concept to life.
The landscape design will be centred on the planted vertical façades and outdoor spaces that will create the worlds tallest vertical garden, stretching from the street level to the top of both towers, paying tribute to Victoria, known as the Garden State and bridging the Royal Botanic Gardens with Melbourne’s Arts Precinct.
Matthew Mackay, Studio Director of ASPECT Studios Melbourne had this to say on our role in the project:
Upon completion, the Future Sky Garden, an expansive, transformative and usable conservatory space at the top of the tallest tower, and extended planted terraces will characterise the facing facades of the two towers as they twist towards each other, connecting people to nature and encouraging healthy city living. A visual beacon for the future of green skyscrapers, the towering vertical garden will push the boundaries of flora-infused buildings, serving to attract local birdlife, sequester CO2 and produce an abundance of oxygen and filter dust and pollutants from the air, improving oxygen levels into the towers and surrounding areas.
