REALMstudios were engaged by Burbank, in collaboration with Genton Architecture, to deliver a landscape design for the surrounding public and semi public realms between a series of townhouse blocks and an apartment tower in the multicultural hub of Dandenong, in Melbourne’s south-east.
The ground floor design comprises of an internal laneway with rear loaded access into the townhouses and private street facing landscape areas. The communal podium level provides a playful, colourful and sculptural area that breaks away from the orthogonal built form and takes inspiration from Dandenong’s recent public realm projects.
Planting and deciduous trees have been selected to screen for privacy while also providing sufficient light/shade and wind amelioration. Together will the hardscape material they define a playful community environment.
