OUR INVOLVEMENT IN CITINICHE

ASPECT Studios is leading the way in the emerging area of "Living Architecture" in Australia.

Put simply, Living Architecture is the integration of plants and water with built form. It includes green roofs, green facades, and green walls. Living Architecture has risen in popularity in both Europe and North America, and is now being recognised in Australia as a critical concept in responding to climate change and the increased demand of water and energy in our cities.

ASPECT Studios is at the forefront of this movement in Australia. Our command of the technical requirements and systems suited to Australia, combined with our design expertise is helping to lead the integration of greening and architecture.

ASPECT Studios' vision is of a city where natural processes are integrated into the very fabric of the urban environment - where plants, water, soil and built form are as one - and together these elements promote a healthy community and resilient environment – a Living Architecture!

Key benefits of Living Architecture include:

  • Contribution to human wellbeing through the provision of green space
  • Improvement in the thermal performance of buildings
  • Regulation of the urban heat island effect on the wider city
  • Regulation of storm water impacts on both buildings and the surrounding environment
  • Integration of water recycling and reduced usage in buildings
  • Contribution to biodiversity values in cities
  • Clear statements of commitment to sustainable design
  • Increased property values and improved amenity
  • Achieving environmental ‘stretch targets’ such as ‘net zero water, energy, waste

ASPECT Studios understands that the key to a successful implementation and widespread up take of Living Architecture is brought about through the collaboration of a diverse group of professionals, from landscape architects, engineers, policy makers, architects, ecologists, and soil scientist and horticulturists.

We see Citiniche as a unique opportunity to encourage the widespread uptake of living architecture in green our cities and making the places we live more sustainable.
