A tropical environment in the heart of Sydney.
Southern hemisphere’s highest man-made waterfall.
Wide-ranging environmental benefits, including urban heat and carbon reduction.
With a vision to bring thriving nature
With a vision to bring thriving nature to the heart of Sydney, Crown Group invited us to join the ambitious Waterfall project team.
In the industrial suburb of Waterloo, Crown, architects SJB and Taylor Brammer were designing a standout residential development. Taking its cues from natural stone, the form of the facade was to be like sculpted rock, and carving its path through to the central courtyard, a 22 metre high waterfall, tumbling into a lagoon.
As consultants on the project, our challenge was to design, build and install a series of green walls the brought the idea to life, including one that would work alongside a cascading waterfall, something that had never been done before.
Applying the principles of biophilic design to the whole development, we rose to the challenge.
