Cairnlea Landscape Masterplan

Location \ Cairnlea, Melbourne
Client \ Vicurban

The Cairnlea Landscape Masterplan combines unique aspects of the existing landscape with a range of planting typologies to create new linkages and spaces for the planned industrial areas within the Cairnlea development.

The landscape concept proposes to artificially create a layer of ‘natural’ infrastructure based on the observed characteristics of the site. It will improve the functionality and amenity of the site and enhance the image of the development. The proposal is based on developing the following elements as prominent icons of the ‘natural’ infrastructure: Forest, Creek, Mountain, Connectivity and Community Space.

These elements will contribute to the essential functions of the development whilst providing distinctive character and amenity to the site.
