A significant endeavour: Landscape architecture in Australia’s capital
A recent article in Foreground highlights the connection between Constitution Avenue, Campbell Section 5 and City to the Lake projects in reshaping a significant part of Canberra’s urban centre.
This year saw the completion of some great projects, in the public domain in Canberra and Sydney. Constitution Avenue in Canberra has been completed along with Thomas & Hay Street in Chinatown, amongst others.
A selection of our recently completed projects have been awarded at a state and national level, with Forest Edge Garden taking out the AILA National Gardens Award of Excellence and Chelsea Street Park receiving the AILA NSW Landscape Architecture Award – Parks and Open Space. Campbell Section 5 (Hassett Park) was also recognised for design excellence, being awarded AILA ACT Award for Excellence – Parks and Open Space, and was highly commended in the Stormwater NSW Award for Excellence in Integrated Stormwater Design.
We wish you all a safe and happy festive season, and we are looking forward to working on more exciting projects in the New Year.
The newly opened park at Campbell Section 5 has recently been recognised in several design awards including:
AILA (ACT) Award for Excellence – Parks and Open Space 2016 – Winner
Stormwater (NSW) Award for Excellence in Integrated Stormwater Design 2016 – Highly Commended
Heavy rains in Canberra over a number of days have tested the new creek with all systems working to perfection.
A new piece of Campbell emerges as the park takes shape.
The new park at Campbell Section 5 provides a continuous park frontage to the suburb and knits the new street network into the existing.
With the streets open to the public excitement is now building for access to this new local recreation space.
JILA has been busy on site with the final stage of works on the new urban park at Campbell Section 5. The recently completed new street network, urban plaza and upgrade of Constitution Avenue frontage has set the standard for a high quality urban precinct in the heart of Canberra.
