TCL’s design for Towers Road Residence has won the 2017 Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) Victoria ‘Gardens Landscape Architecture Award’.

Monash University Northern plaza has come to fruition with the precinct now open for the start of the university year.
The Plaza project reflects a broader trend in the design of university spaces to host staff, students and the wider community in a more varied range of ways. Universities also need to provide for growing student populations, and a greater proportion of students to choosing live on-campus, with access to multipurpose open space.

Last December TCL held an exhibition at the Adelaide studio to celebrate the Poet Mark Tredennick’s highly expansive and inspiring time as the 2016 Kevin Taylor Legacy ‘Creative in Residence’. Mark’s suit of 10 poems, displayed as large floating banners interpreted themes from TCL’s design for the Bendigo Botanic Garden - ‘Garden of the Future’.
In addition art works by many at TCL responded to a number of Mark’s earlier published works.
In Mark’s words :
The office became a gallery, ….a forest of sculpted thought and word.
As I’d hoped, my work for the firm became work with the firm. An ekphrasis. A garden. A future.
For all at TCL Mark’s masterly and evocative poems, as well as his writing workshops and involvement in a number of projects certainly extended us in our pursuit for an expanded field of Landscape Architecture.

TCL are back in the studio after our summer break, and we are looking forward to more creative collaborations and fabulous projects in 2017.
One of our creative collaboration highlights from 2016 was the Towers Road Residence in Toorak.
The sculptural residence designed by Wood March Architects boasts a lush circular fernery nestled between the building walls – an array of layered plantings and a scattering of granite plinths create an exotic atmosphere. TCL’s collaborative relationship with architect and client led to the design of a garden with a ‘sense of embrace’—a poetic garden of ‘structured chaos’. The verdant, diverse and textured forms of the garden provide a contrast to the architectural concrete form of the building.
The Towers Road Project has recently been added to our website and can be viewed in more detail here.
