Monterea Road, Ripley

The drainage reserve for this 144 lot residential development also functions as a district parkland for the community. Natural play elements are designed to become integral and distinctive features of the landscape. Boulders are used as steps and dry gullies, fallen trees are reused to create simple, cost efficient and durable natural play elements.

Storm water design features include:

  • Designated low flow paths to enable functional active and passive recreation areas
  • Boulder lined outflow and gully treatments to contribute to water flow dissipation.
  • Native reed planting along gullies to promote a natural creek aesthetic.
  • Pedestrian/cycle paths and bridge crossings located for high water access 

Gowrie Residential Estate

LARK was commissioned to develop perspective images for the streetscapes for the proposed residential estate on the outskirts of Toowoomba. A new shopping centre, street trees, footpaths, street furniture, parkland and playground areas were created with sketchup modelling software. Rough hand drawn and coloured sketches bring to life possible scenarios for the streets of the proposed development.
