We've noticed a growing interest in green roofs and walls for houses, gardens and commercial properties. In the latest issue of Cityscape Paul & Gabe talk about them more. Check it out below or at the link here
We are excited to be shortlisted for two awards at this year’s Resene NZILA Pride of Place Landscape Architecture Awards. Nomayah House on the Richmond Hills has been nominated in the Residential category and Whitehaven Winery in Marlborough has been nominated in the Commercial category. We are incredibly honoured to be nominated alongside many other talented landscape architects throughout New Zealand. The awards ceremony is taking place on the 5th April so watch this space!
Construction is underway on the rebuild of Oxford Terrace Baptist Church in Christchurch - sadly the original heritage building was severely damaged in the Canterbury Earthquakes, collapsing on February 22 2011. However through disaster comes opportunity and the new building will enable a wide range of community based activities to be housed and hosted.
Canopy is working closely with the Church, Architect (Andrew Barrie Laboratory Ltd) and other consultants to deliver a landscaped setting for the new building incorporating many of the existing established trees in the landscape design. New sculpture and seating will be created from stone and timbers salvaged from the heritage building.
We are looking forward to helping this project emerge from the ground over the next few months.
