40A & 40B O’DEA AVENUE
This ambitious “green building” in Sydney’s Green Square area is a collaboration between CLOUSTON, architects Collins & Turner and Environa Studio. A study in landscape integration, the design establishes a strong theme at ground level with a “Paper Bark Forest” evoking the area’s original ecology.
The building design incorporates extensive areas of podium planting to give the appearance of a green facade. This effect extends to the communal court at ground level, the external covered lobby areas and the roof areas at levels 5 and 21, which take advantage of the impressive CBD views.
Detailed design solutions created for the installation and management of planting not only offer a high amenity for residents and enhance the building’s appearance, they also help to reduce the maintenance burden and strata fees.
