717 Bourke Street

A multi level urban landscape realm wrapped around two buildings drove the design towards a highly architectural outcome.

ASPECT Studios was engaged to design and document the streetscape, pocket park, podium forecourt and courtyards for this mixed use development in the Docklands.

Working collaboratively with Metier3 architects and PDS Group, a new precinct has been added to the Docklands.

Wanting to remove the typical 90 degree relationship with landscape and the building, ASPECT Studios created a language of tectonic landscape forms, made of ramps, seats, garden beds and decks.
