Multi-Residential & Mixed-Use

_We create adaptable, aesthetic and culturally-aware shared spaces for multi-level and multi-dwelling residential housing and connect people with their day to day places of work, activity and enjoyment, creating spaces that are functional and effective and inspiring.


▽ Promenade, Stages 2 & 3

In 2014, SCAPE Design was engaged to deliver the landscape design for Stages 2 and 3 of the project for the developer Starryland Australia and subsequently provided detailed design for the builder, Probuild, who completed construction in 2018. The landscape architectural vision for the communal and public spaces is to utilise the geological and botanical heritage of the site in order to create a tranquil and unique environment for it’s residents. Spaces have been designed to encourage relaxation and communal interaction. With the predicted influx of young families to the site, children’s play has been catered for including a dedicated play facility on Level 6, informal play on Level 3 and a water play area on the ground floor, which importantly is also accessible to the public and will contribute to a new Parramatta riverfront precinct.

▽ No 1 Lachlan, Waterloo


Formally known as Block A of Becton’s ‘Divercity’ development in Waterloo during the planning stages, the development was the last remaining piece to be constructed within a new high quality urban community in Sydney’s inner East. In 2016 the site was renamed ‘No1 Lachlan’ by new owners Time & Place, who commissioned SCAPE Design in 2014. The vision for the public and communal space on both ground floor level and the roof terraces is to recreate the character of an urban village set within a Sydney Sandstone heath landscape. The design and utilisation of space has been carefully considered to create room for active and passive recreation within relatively confined areas. Elements and features include communal BBQ/ bar area, kitchen garden, seating catering to large groups and intimate niches, shaded terrace areas to encourage usage and enhance the sense of community for residents. On the ground floor, publicly accessible areas were designed to conform with City of Sydney requirements, including accessible parking, public plaza and a childcare centre.

▽ Esplanade, Norwest


This multi-residential and mixed-use development is situated on the foreshore of Norwest Lake, within the Norwest Business Park in Baulkham Hills. This commanding location will make a significant contribution to public open space, as the lake front promenade forms part of an important pedestrian connection around the lake, which soon will be linked to the new Norwest Metro Rail station (due for completion in 2019). Other features of the development include a retail and restaurant precinct, office space, communal roof top featuring swimming pool, golf putting green/ bocce lawn, outdoor cinema screen, water features and substantial shaded BBQ facilities. The planting palette comprises natives and lush exotic species culminating in an Australian ‘resort’ aesthetic.


▽ Melrose Park VRS

In 2016, SCAPE Design were commissioned by PAYCE Developments to prepare a detailed masterplan of the Melrose Park Stage 1 site known as Melrose Park VRS. The landscape architectural vision for the communal and public spaces of the VRS development is to create a communal enclave that is protected from the busy Victoria Road side, which links the development to Parramatta in Sydney’s west. This will result in a tranquil and unique environment for its residents set amongst a lush and green open space. Elements of the geological origin such as sandstone and water will be used within the open space design in conjunction with local endemic plant species of the Cumberland Plain Woodland, Turpentine Ironbark Forest and Blue Gum High Forest.
