John Gorton Building Entry

SPACELAB were engaged to undertake Landscape Architecture for the upgrade of the existing forecourt entry to this prominent Federal Government building in Canberra’s Parliamentary Triangle.


The project was undertaken within upgrade works by the National Capital Authority. The vision of providing an arrival experience to this significant public space has been realised through considerate design and understanding of its formal context.  


Natural Australian stone selected to create a plaza of significance is complimented by native Australian plantings, which soften and contrast the formality of the heritage listed sandstone facade.
