Riverina Apartments

Xing One Australia with Peddle Thorp Architects, Footscray, VIC

Pollen Studio in collaboration with Buro Architects were commissioned by Xing One Australia to develop the streetscape and forecourt landscape design for this major project in Footscray. The development incorporates approx. 1000 apartments with a large central forecourt on podium as well as vertical gardens and upper terrace planters.

  The forecourt is designed to provide highly legible access, welcoming landscape features, strong place setting identity with high amenity for a significant public place. The forecourt will seamlessly connect pedestrian spaces within the site, as well as to the surrounding street network with clear sight lines and extensive oversight. The dedicated landscaped areas will allow residents a generous ‘front yard’ experience with a series of possible meeting areas, where residents, workers, or visitors can gather, spread-out, meet, or pause and relax.

Pollen had extensive input into the development of the physical model of the building and it’s landscapes.
