Merry Christmas from the jila team


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 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.
