Jury comment

One Central Park is a standout project by virtue of its application of technical advancements. These include soil and planting research, testing and development for the seven kilometres of balcony planting and green facade that cover the buildings in a challenging urban environment, and the recycled blackwater irrigation system developed for the project, the first of its kind in Australia. The courtyards are inviting spaces for residents and visitors alike to enjoy.

The project makes a substantial contribution to the promotion of landscape architecture and the advancement of culture through design advocacy. Demonstrating a highly integrated community and sustainable design outcome of outstanding quality, the client is commended for taking on the risks associated with this nonstandard project solution, one that has delivered exceptional rewards for the locale and its residents.
