Helping Billbergia create tranquillity at Z.E.N. Apartments

13 Nov 2019

Z.E.N. stands for Zest, Energy and Nature. Scott Carver Architects designed the apartments with OCULUS providing the beautiful landscape architecture around the philosophy of ‘the beauty of balance’ capturing the essence of the elements.

Their second project with Billbergia Group, Glascott Landscape & Civil delivered the landscape construction on the surrounding streets, podium level and unique rooftop.

The team supplied and installed all landscaping to the surrounding street including planting 12 large palms and planter boxes along the median strip. They undertook all the planting in the main podium on Level 3, and created the apartment’s showpiece – the rooftop garden at Level 26.

The rooftop is a major feature of the development, providing a unique outdoor environment with 360° views. Glascott designed and constructed the ponds that contain water and fire features, giving the space a sense of peace.

Working on the rooftop represented some challenges, particularly with the various trades on site utilising the internal lift to move materials. Glascott is very experienced in working in busy site environments, meeting the challenges caused by environmental or human impact.

The completed Z.E.N. Apartments are certainly living up to their name, capturing the balance of harmonious city living.
