The Ark

LocationNorth Sydney, Australia

PLACE Design Group was appointed as the landscape architects for the development at 40 Mount Street, North Sydney.

The building named as “The Ark” has received six green stars at design stage.  The landscape design involved treatment of landscape components within the foyer undercroft areas and the upgrade of the public spaces surrounding the building, as part of the CBD upgrade program. A significant site specific language has been introduced reflecting the landmark nature of the development while reinterpreting the site references in the form of large steel and timber planters, feature planting, heritage pavement detailing and sculptural screening elements.
