WINNER Landscape Award UDIA VICTORIA AWARDS 2013
WINNER of THE HUME CITY COUNCIL BUSINESS AWARD 2012
For excellence in: Provision of Creative Open Space.
On the northern fringes of suburban Melbourne, a new park called Napoli, has come alive within the Providence Estate.
Contributing to this wonderful community open space and integral to the design is the vibrant creative work of artist of Davia McMillan of Davia Designs. Davia’s work in association with TRACT began at the concept stage and continued through to designs development, construction detailing and onsite liaison during construction. Through this contribution, the park took on a new sense of refinement, permanence and joy. Davia’s work bought with it a rich overlay of themes, colour and texture. These include contemporary links between Australian and Italian fruit and food at the picnic shelter, seasonal themes within the park’s main east west axis, and small Australian creatures at home within the stones and pencil pine maze. A small, unique mosaic can also be found at each seating node.
