This Architecturally designed modern apartment building is located in an older inner city suburb of West Melbourne. The contemporary mixed with old suburban buildings works well with the vertical garden added and complementing the design. The vertical garden is made up of 4 sections and used as a street view making a powerful impact.
The series of elevated sections of the gardens face North East hence they are all drought tolerant and sun hardy species.
