Cabrini Hospital Malvern

John Patrick Landscape Architects were engaged to work on a new hospital wing as part of the Cabrini Malvern Hospital redevelopment, which includes, a state-of-the-art medical facility encompassing cardiac, maternity, and oncology facilities. The contemporary architectural design required a cohesive landscape response which complimented the façade and materiality of the new building.

Outdoor spaces, in the form of a private maternity courtyard, rooftop garden and forecourt area were designed by JPLA to create a calm and unique environment promoting patient care.

Deep green textural plantings incorporating Alocasia, Sarcococca and Liriope were selected to offset the terracotta façade of the building. The lush, tropical-feel planting was designed to provide patients with a sense of being surrounded and protected by greenery, promoting well-being and healing.

East Melbourne Residential Garden

John Patrick Landscape Architects were engaged to design a garden space in East Melbourne.  The brief was to create a series of connections through the garden to a sitting area and pool.

A muted materials palette, consisting of warm tones of aged brick create a strong border, which links individual pathways and terraces. Muted tones of light and dark grey pavers are used separately and in conjunction with one another to create a striking checkerboard pattern that becomes the central focus of the garden.

Designed to be looked on from above, the strong geometric pattern is softened by perennials and ornamental grasses that capture the light and provides a sense of movement to the space.
