SKY GARDEN PLANTER BOXES – 24M2
PROJECT BUILDER – Probuild Constructions
ARCHITECT – ARM Architecture
DESIGN / INSTALL – Fytogreen Australia
COMPLETION – December 2014
Fytogreen was commissioned to install 22 Roto mould planter boxes to create a sky garden on level 31, of the 85 metre high Grocon apartment building, at the former Carlton United Brewery site on Swanston Street.
The planter boxes were designed to ensure drainage was direct to the storm-water outlets by passing the water proof membrane, thus penetrating the membrane mesh. A total of 12 species were used to provide a mixture of colour and form. This is currently Fytogreen’s first installation at a height of level 31 and apart from the challenges involved in access it is a resounding success.
