Project Description

FDC (VIC) are proud to have contributed in-kind support to deliver Hortus: Harbour Esplanade Activation Project/Utopian at Docklands Harbour Esplanade.

The initial stage of this high profile project includes the construction of a glass house structure with a plant installation by artist Lauren Berkowitz and a café within from Seven Seeds, and a pavilion that can be used by the community. FDC constructed the house and undertook all the internal joinery.

The project aims to educate the public in holistic and sustainable living through the implementation of a glass house pavilion. Harvested rainwater and food waste composting will be integral elements to the building design.

The project was executed in collaboration with Folk Architects, Montlaur, Viridian Glass, Aecom, Philip Chun, Glasshouse Co, Stowe, Int.Paints, Action Alliance, Seven Seeds and Tin & Ed.
