From its broader urban design response through to the smallest landscape detailing, Lucent demonstrates the value that landscape architects can bring to all stages of a project, when involved from the outset. Collaboration with the local council and consultants has resulted in full perimeter activation, with blurred building edges creating verdant, multifunctional spill-out spaces that positively interact with the public realm. The split roof awnings are a wonderful innovation for this environment, supporting cascading and climbing plants while drawing sunlight and air into the ground-level retail spaces.
A rigorous horticultural approach seamlessly integrates soils and planting structures into the architecture. Careful species selection, based on sun studies and microclimate conditions, ensures a depth and density of planting that is particularly successful for a building of this scale.
The landscape responds well to its context to provide maximum amenity and extensive opportunities for multiple layers of landscape, creating a compelling offering for high-density urban living. Design practice Form Landscape Architects Collaborators Cavcorp; Plazibat Architects Photographer Yan Chen
