Rapid urbanisation entails challenges to make cities greener, cleaner and more liveable.
Brisbane's West Village in Australia is an excellent example of how (re)developing and maintaining sustainable green living spaces reconnects people with nature.
Did you know that TerraCottem supports the development of sustainable cities and communities?
In the last two years, Brisbane's West Village has been transformed into an innovative living heritage village.
Find out how TerraCottem helped transform an old factory site into an Urban Rooftop Jungle with beautiful exotic roof gardens.
The architecture of West Village is inspired by the world's most imaginative neighbourhoods. It brings the community together in a more liveable environment with spaces to work, live and play. West Village reimagines urban living: vibrant avenues with beautiful rooftop gardens and thriving lush, healthy tropical gardens.
All this has been brought to life with the help of TerraCottem soil improver, making West Village an attractive place to live and work.
TerraCottem is the ideal soil conditioner to maximize nutrient uptake, save 50% water, and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.
The success rate when planting trees can be as high as 90% - more growth, less work.
The team from Centenary Landscaping Supplies applied TerraCottem universal at 3kg per cubic metre to a specially designed soil mix.
Senior Architect from RPS Landscape Architects, Des Cloake, coordinated the project at West Village. “I’ve seen TerraCottem perform virtual miracles on some sand-based soils. But here at West Village, TerraCottem was coupled with properly specified, produced and quality controlled growing media to produce the no-nonsense, high-performance result required from these plantings. Hi-performance results come with the right materials being specified and then produced and installed with strict quality controls”, says Des Cloake.
West Village has won several awards for design and innovation, including the “Finalist for Commercial Landscape Construction of the Year”.
Further, West Village Brisbane won “the National Landscape Architecture Awards” and “urban renewal awards”.
TerraCottem helps create sustainable communities such as these.
