In collaboration with Kanebridge Property and Jackson Teece, Urbis developed a landscape response that celebrates this pioneer residential development.
Marsden Central will be a residential cornerstone to new Marsden Park growth area. Chosen due to its close proximity to the future Marsden Park town centre, the development will have direct access to a new public transport hub, retail and commercial shops, schools and various recreational and green spaces.
The landscape design strategy responds to the development in three key areas: public domain, communal open space and rooftop terraces. The public domain active street frontages create a bright and friendly experience for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists with generous path widths, native tree canopies and lush green planting buffer to the building setback. An integrated linear WSUD garden bed captures and treats roof storm-water runoff, creating unique residential entries.
Communal ground level consists of open lawn areas, BBQ and outdoor dining facilities, adventure sculptural play spaces, informal meeting spaces, feature tree groves and a series of private seating nooks. Lush buffer planting is provided to the residential frontages providing direct access to the communal open space.
Private rooftop terraces create a more intimate residential experience with a mix of flexible BBQ/seating arbours and series of small open retreat/reading rooms, all surrounded by a lush planting structure.
