Fashion City is a purpose-built facility for fashion wholesalers designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects incorporating office and warehouse space. The landscape spaces designed by Murray & Associates include a café terrace and courtyard as well as peripheral spaces and screen planting.
Overall, the concept for Fashion City was to create an elegant, yet varied scheme for the site which would utilise a broad range of shrubs and trees to create colour, texture and visual interest. Phase One of the landscape works are completed to date. The centrepiece of this phase is the courtyard space enclosed by the office / warehouse buildings. The central area is divided by the café building and enclosed with water, tree planting and level changes to create three distinct spaces. The paved rectilinear café terrace is surrounded with water on varying levels. Timber crossing points are provided for access across the water.
To the south of the terrace is a paved space at a lower level, enclosed with ornamental bamboo and shrub planting. Seating is provided adjacent to a pool with fountains. To the north of the café is another paved space enclosed with a seating wall and tree and shrub planting.
