108 Flinders Steet Receives 2015 Melbourne Design Award

The concept for this totally synthetic landscape arose as a whimsical response to a set of restrictive functional issues.

The twelve storey apartment building at 108 Flinders Street, Melbourne, designed by Fender Katsalidis Architects and with Landscape by Tract Consultants, allows for a slender centralized first-floor courtyard, eighteen metres long by only eight metres wide, with a towering vertical elevation stretching up eleven stories.

While this space provides the residents of the surrounding apartments with an outlook and natural light, the proportions bring with it a curtailed sense of privacy, with limited access for the maintenance of a living landscape.
