Gold: Rainscapes for their Yarraville Project
"Utilising various landscape treatments for hardscape and softscape including water sensitive urban design techniques, this is an amazing transformation of a closed section of roadway into vibrant useable open green space for the neighbourhood. Accommodating the local school community, the space provides safe movement for students between two campuses, whilst prioritising student access to quality open space.
The newly constructed pocket park is a welcome zone for recreational activities with improved seating, lighting for passive surveillance and safety, and bicycle lanes that are effectively separated from the pedestrian paths by garden beds and planting, and it also forms an important cycle and pedestrian link to the Yarraville train station for residents and commuters north of Somerville Road.
Rainscapes have executed a well-considered project with various detailed landscape treatments that have been constructed and delivered to the highest of standards."
