Hillam Architects LANDSCAPE DESIGN
illam Architects is a progressive
practice dedicated to excellence
in design. Each concept responds
specifically to client and project
conditions to produce projects that are tailored,
particular and buildable.
The tranquil yet exotic gardens of Aria Apartments
provides a lush backdrop to this Swanbourne project.
Designed by Hillam Architects, in collaboration with
CAPA Landscape Architects, Aria Apartments blends
the sophistication of luxury resorts with a relaxed,
Inspired by the indulgence of southeast Asian
resort designs, the seamless integration of expansive
terraces and outdoor living spaces within an oasis
of both native and exotic landscaping is reflective of
increasingly sophisticated client expectations.
This immersive approach commences with
a streetscape of weeping peppermint trees
complementing a carpet of purple flowers,
punctuating the retained, native bushland setting
adjacent to the project. Residents are guided from
the street through a dramatic foyer space to an
intimate courtyard, lined by feature-lit reflection
ponds. A purple mist of Hardenbergia planters
directs residents towards an expansive and elevated
deck, framed by tropical landscaping. A communal
cabana space and infinity-edge pool is orientated
to maximise commanding views across the Lake
Claremont Golf Course to the city beyond.
Contrasting the vibrant and social design of the
pool deck, a lily garden of purple and white flowers,
cascading golden bamboos and perfumed southern
jasmine provides a private backdrop to a timber-lined
yoga studio and massage space, allowing residents to
balance exercise of the mind, body and soul.
