2018 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Landscape Architecture Award for Gardens

Eve Apartments by 360 Degrees Landscape Architects

Jury citation:

Eve Apartments successfully establishes an immersive “backyard” feel for residents, with a lush planting palette that promotes interaction in a mix of beautiful garden spaces. Rambling gardens spill onto street frontages from secluded courtyard spaces. Planting extends up the facade of the building, where vigorous rainforest vines reach skyward from balconies on trellis structures. The roof gardens, in turn, offer respite and recreation for residents, with a series of spaces created by a sophisticated layering of dryland plants. The jury commends the landscape architects for establishing a garden typology that promotes interaction with a diverse mix of species while enhancing the wellbeing of apartment residents.
