Macarthur Memorial Park

Macarthur Memorial Park

Working closely with Stormy Water Solutions, Travers Bushfire Ecology and WS&P engineers, the proposal considers existing historical dams, WSUD elements, retarding basin flood storage and water quality management issues within the site whilst adhering to strict requirements for watercourses from the Office of Water NSW. Whilst minor swales direct run-offs to existing and new wetlands, the challenge lays in minimisation of disturbance to the existing dams and minimisation of new wetland footprint to ensure maximal use of the land for burial with particular emphasis of safe and aesthetic integration of all WSUD and retarding elements into the landscape.

Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park

Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park

For many years we expressed our passion for art in cemeteries so when a new Sculpture – inspired memorial garden was being developed in the scenic Pinnaroo Cemetery in Perth, our firm was entrusted with the concept design and implementation of Stage 1 of this small sculpture park.
The concept is based on the four elements (Earth, Wind, Fire and Water). Each garden within is centred on a sculpture, using local artwork and local vegetation in a strong architectural design. A variety of memorialisation types suitable for singles, couples and families, at different pricing levels have been incorporated into the layout to maximise the yield without compromising the strong aesthetic value of the site.
The scope of services included selection of artwork, liaising with artists, design and documentation in collaboration with MCB staff.
