South Bank Lagoon Rejuvenation
AILA 2015 Queensland Medal for Landscape Architecture
A destination with the popularity of the South Bank Parkland Lagoon only deserves the best design outcomes. Challenged with water quality and safety issues, Vee design worked closely with City Parkland Transition Services to rejuvenate the main lagoon and its surrounds. Vee Design has great delight in the fact that the design discreetly becomes an integral part of the South Bank Parklands as if it was always there. Our design took inspiration from its location and setting creating a true sub-tropical destination with additions including large decks, sun lounges, umbrellas, sub-tropical planting and grassed lawns for users to lounge in the sun after a swim or watch the sunset after a long day.
“This reworking and adaptation has been achieved through a comprehensive approach by the landscape architects who have embraced a full understanding of the spectrum of operational and design issues, boldly reinventing a much used asset and thereby avoiding the need to create a new standalone object.”
