The Sky Park at Lendlease’s Melbourne Quarter development is an elevated park designed as a verdant oasis by Oculus and Aspect Studios.

Based on the principles of biophilic design, the Sky Park is suspended over a wide pedestrian plaza with views of Southern Cross Station. The park is open for public access from Monday to Friday and provides comforting green spaces for local residents.

Anston Architectural was engaged by the designers from Oculus to deliver custom exposed aggregate paving planks from their Atlas range for the hardscaped areas within Sky Park. The custom paving solution was a modified mix with an exposed aggregate look, created by using the existing colour Atlas from Anston’s Granite Range as a paving base and adding chunky bluestone fragments.

With due consideration to the expected high foot traffic, the paving was created to withstand stains from general wear.

Sky Park and the adjacent commercial tower at One Melbourne Quarter represent the first stage of the extensive Lendlease development. Once complete, Melbourne Quarter will form a brand new city precinct in the south of the CBD, housing new residences, offices, shops and hospitality spaces.
