Citicene were engaged to deliver Landscape Architectural services for Development Approval as well as Construction services. The landscape for shopping centres can typically be neglected, however applying smart design principles help to ensure the development integrates with the surrounding environment.
Consideration of stormwater overland flow through landscape filtration devices, screening and buffering of built form, provision of shade for pedestrians and users, smart selection of frost and
drought tolerant plant species indigenous to the area, positioning of trees and shrubs to maintain safe sightlines and prevent crime are all standard design principles that are typically applied to shopping centre developments.
Close coordination within the consultant team to ensure an integrated and cohesive design outcome while satisfying Council local regulations and conditions are priorities to deliver this project in accordance with the Client's budget and requirements.
