In late 2014 Verdigris was engaged by developer Lend Lease to design and implement a large temporary garden. The garden would surround the proposed display suite for the Toorak Park development at 590 Orrong Road Armadale.
The site of an old government building, the car park at the front of this huge site was to be rapidly transformed into a large display suite. With a very tight schedule, the car park was to be removed, excavated, the display suite craned into position, 250m3 of new soil and subsequent garden were to be installed all in approximately three weeks. During the height of summer 2015 all plant stock was delivered, installed, irrigated and the site made ready for the first visitors on opening night. In the early design stages we closely with CARR Design Group the projects architects. The sourcing of advanced plant sock was crucial to the instant effect required by the client.
The garden and the display suite were on site for 6 months and were then removed to make way for the larger development. Toorak Park is currently under construction designed by Denton Corker Marshall with interiors by CARR.
