Subdivisional Developments

Element Design specialises in residential subdivision landscape architecture.

All aspects of the development including Entry Statements, footpath plantings drainage swales, bio-retention basins, street tree plantings, re-vegetation areas, buffer screening and open space parks can be designed and documented. Parks can include shelters, seating, bicycle tracks, drink fountains, children’s play equipment, rubbish bins, shade structures. Residential subdivisions and housing estates that are master planned and documented can provide positive economic and environmental outcomes for the client.

Fig Tree Circuit, Caboolture.

A large mature fig tree located on site provided the inspiration for the feature entry statement. The fig trees buttress roots twist and curve, radiating from the trunk. The signage has been constructed using laser cut, powder coated, aluminium plate. Designed by Element Design and constructed by Hekagroup.

Entrance Island, Birtinya, Queensland.

A boutique waterfront, gated community in the heart of Birtinya. Element Design was engaged to design and document all hard and soft landscape aspects of the development. This included entry walls, gatehouse, tennis court, pavilion and central boulevard. Element Design worked with the developer and associated consultants to create an outstanding result on the ground.

The formal stone faced entry is flanked by large ex-ground palms. Smart gate technology, allows restricted access to seven lots off a central boulevard. Water Sensitive Urban Design systems have been integrated throughout the site, to ensure stormwater is of a high quality when leaving the site. A community tennis court and covered entertainment area have been brought together using pavilion style roofs, stone faced columns, tiled capping and exposed aggregate. Select semi-coastal planting has been successfully used throughout the site to complement the built form and make this project something special.

Glasshouse Country Estate, Clark Avenue, Glass House Mountains.

A recently opened estate, nestled within the picturesque, Glass House Mountains. The entry statement consists of stone buttresses and base, with a rendered inner wall to display the developments name and logo. A turf park runs parallel to Coonowrin Creek, that includes casual seating areas, all overlooking a rehabilitation zone. Creative solutions have been provided where stormwater overland flows traverse the site.

Pine River Estate, Griffin, Queensland.

The first photo shows the entry signage to this multi-staged residential subdivision. Many obstacles were overcome on this corner while still presenting the sales office – sandstone retaining blocks to solve level change from footpath to floor level, piered footings to span sewer lines, aluminium frames for manhole access and gravel foundation to footpath to prevent stormwater seepage. A palette of different materials and plants have been used to create interest in a limited area. Oversize rocks and gravel have been used to accommodate overland flow within a large feature roundabout. Low planting is used to maintain vehicle sightlines with feature Hoop Pines as the signature tree.
