Green architecture has many benefits. Vegetation shades hard urban surfaces and reduces microclimate temperatures through evapotranspiration. Plants add layers of insulation to a building’s walls and roof, absorb carbon dioxide, release oxygen and capture air pollutants.

Sunshine Coast University Hospital | Health and public architecture

Sunshine Coast University Hospital
The Sunshine Coast University Hospital is an exemplary world class health and educational facility that puts patient experience, well-being and biophilia at its forefront. 

Research in biophilia (the innate affinity human beings have for nature) reveals improvements in worker health and productivity, and patient recovery times when environments incorporate living plants.

We advocate for green architecture through the incorporation of roof and balcony gardens, and living walls. We help establish larger and more diverse green spaces that connect town centres, public transport hubs and major residential areas.

Barrack Place
A generous roof terrace is located on the transfer floor at level 7 of this office building. The space is enclosed and protected by the brick parapet wall of the podium and is softened by landscaping, providing a comfortable outdoor environment for building occupants.

Green Grid Implementation | Biophilic design

Green Grid Strategy Implementation
The Greater Sydney Commission engaged us to review and assist in the implementation of 18 priority projects that were identified in the Green Grid Strategy developed by the NSW Government Architects office and Tyrrell Studio.

The Green Grid Strategy seeks to connect Sydney’s open space, from regional to local parks, private and public sport facilities, and foreshore areas, via cycleways, pedestrian connections and major transport routes.
