NewQuay – Buildings D + E

NewQuay – Buildings D + E

  • Client MAB
  • Location Docklands
  • Completed 2016


Buildings D + E at NewQuay, Docklands is a residential project comprising two apartment towers on top of a
podium featuring car parking and commercial tenancies addressing the streetscape.

GbLA have completed landscape documentation for the streetscape landscapes and a large podium landscape
providing communal open space for the residents of the two apartment blocks.

The landscape design is integrated with the façade treatment of the buildings illustrated by the strongly graphic
‘stripes’ through the podium landscape. The podium landscape features a large shelter with a barbecue area
underneath, an open air barbeque area that take advantage of views across Victoria Harbour as well as extensive
lawn areas and garden beds. Private terraces address the communal open space with planting to boundaries
providing shade and privacy. Trees planted across the roof terrace mitigate winds and divide the terrace into smaller

The streetscape design confirms to the Melbourne City Council design guidelines while providing address points for
each building – a landscape walkway through Building D and a small plaza for Building E.
