Our Landscape Architecture and Structural teams in WA have used the latest in Virtual Reality Technology to showcase the application of our immersive design approach for the new $2.6 million public open space which is due to be completed mid-year.
The Explorer Park is a key piece of community amenity being delivered at Sienna Wood by Stockland in partnership with the Department of Communities.
The park's layout incorporates a living stream and vegetated swales that meander through the site, enhancing the landscape spaces and the activity nodes.
One of the project's key features is the 'Tree of Life', which serves as an artistic and iconic central node for the public open space. This node provides opportunity for people to interact and gather, creating a meaningful allegory for the residents.
Through abstracting the tree's sculptural form, the landscape integrates with the living stream and the other activity areas. This abstraction and juxtaposition creates a series of interesting patterns and land forms that strengthens the landscape concept.
Also featuring is a network of walkways and cycle paths to connect play space areas, fitness zones, shaded barbecue areas and water and sand play elements.
