ASPECT Studios were engaged to develop a design that assists with rejuvenating the public realm for the building, in line with the architectural refit. The landscape and building have a strong visual connection through the façade and paving treatments.

The planting design for the project includes mature Magnolias as the centre piece of the landscape. The Magnolias will provide assistance with wind mitigation whilst being a major visual node in the middle of both plazas.
