The Orana Creators – Fitzgerald Frisby Landscape Architecture

Posted in: Community

At the heart of Orana is a connection to nature, boasting over 42 hectares of wetlands and green spaces.  Behind this design is the talented and passionate team at Fitzgerald Frisby Landscape Architecture (FFLA).

FFLA understands every natural environment is unique and sculpts the landscape for each individual community, creating remarkable outdoor spaces for the whole family to enjoy.

“Orana has all the ingredients of a great neighbourhood with parks, sporting facilities, tree-lined streets, wetlands, community facilities, schools and shopping,” Director Mark Frisby said.
“A network of walking and cycling trails has already started construction which will include connections along roadsides, within parks, around the wetlands and as part of linear open spaces.”

This trail network will cleverly connect all amenities in Orana – including the town centre and primary school – encouraging residents to walk everywhere.

As well as the walking trails, Mark loves the design of the tree-lined streets throughout Orana which will provide both shade and colour, while the extensive outdoor spaces will promote health and wellness in the community.

“We look forward to seeing families playing in the park, people walking with friends and kids riding their bikes.

“Outdoor spaces will provide opportunity for the community to gather for events, catch up with friends or just relax and enjoy the outdoors,” Mark said.

“The size of Orana – South-East Melbourne’s largest masterplanned community – sets the project apart from other communities. Developments the size of Orana have the ability to create a community where all parts of the neighbourhood have been designed to be a part of the bigger project vision.” he said.
