• Jewell Station Public Realm Upgrade

    Glas has designed the public realm upgrade to Jewell station, Brunswick. The landscape includes ground level shade planting, raingardens, balcony planting and roof terrace planting. Glas collaborated with BKK architects and MA architects to create a design that integrates the landscape design into the architectural design to maximise the quality of the external spaces.

  • Urban microclimate strategy, Maribyrnong Defence Site

    Microclimate Masterplan, Maribyrnong, VIC

    For Places Victoria, 2011 – 2012

    Glas in collaboration with ARUP has developed a series of landscape microclimate scenarios to help achieve optimal external comfort within the urban environment of the Maribyrnong Defence site. ARUP has tested these designs using climate-modelling software. Together we have translated this information back into the detailed studies to create a suite of external spaces optimising the comfort for a variety of outdoor activities. Glas has developed an urban forestry solution which uses recent urban heat island effect findings to define street tree planting strategies to maximise summer cooling in new residential streets.
