The recently-completed Helensvale library and community centre on the Gold Coast features a large tree planter plus bollards made by Quatro Design in GRC. The large custom seat planter is 3.5 metres x 2.5 metres, and was made without a floor in it. This enables the tree roots to grown downwards into the subsoil below. Quatro Design also supplied the timber seat elements.
We made two seat planters for the project although only one made it into the completed project. The Gold Coast City Council is likely to incorporate the second planter into another local project.
The bollards (400 x 400 x 450) incorporate lighting, and were also custom-made for the project.
Landscape design was by Complete Urban’s Gold Coast branch.
