Tennyson Reach Sales Office
Scape Shapes landscaped Mirvac’s Sales Office for their latest major project – the development of the disused Tennyson Power Station site on the banks of the Brisbane River.
Mirvac plans to deliver an international-standard tennis facility linked to a fully integrated luxury riverfront residential precinct of approximately 260 luxury apartments, over six buildings.
Scape Shapes tiered the entrance to the Sales Office with curved, basalt clad block walls incorporating the coloured, sandblasted concrete steps for the entrance path. Other exposed concrete paths encircle the main gardens, which are also divided by curved tapered recycled brick and concrete mulch banding. This recycled mulch (which was the remains of the old power station) was also used as paving around the base of the existing mango tree, a focal point for the landscape. Rock filled gabions create a feature retaining wall to one section of the carpark and the exposed aggregate concrete and timber garden edging help create a gentle wave effect throughout the main gardens.
Extensive lawns of Sir Walter turf give grandeur and a manicured finish to the whole landscape.
The gardens have a fully installed irrigation system drawing from a 46,000 litre onsite tank.
