Winners – 2012 National Landscape Architecture Award

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded an Australian Institute of Landscape Architects National Landscape Design Award for the Clifton Hill Project!

The judges citation recognised how we “skilfully reclaimed a much loved but badly degraded portion of the public realm along the Merri Creek and have given it a new life as a sensitive and well considered space much to the delight of users and stakeholders”.

The jury identified that as the principle designer of this project, Jeavons Landscape Architects exhibited the breadth and scope of the landscape architect by having a key role in broad scale planning and visioning as well as addressing multiple functional requirements including design, planning, consultation, conservation and reclamation.
This project was designed by Jeavons for the Department of Transport . We also wish to acknowledge the many other contributors to the project including: the Department of Transport, Planned FX, MGS Architects, Ecology Australia,  Dr Peter May & Homewood Consulting as well as stakeholders who contributed valuable feedback.  Construction was by John Holland Group and softscape works were by Normark Landscapes.

Thank you to AILA, we are truly honoured to receive this award.
