Guymer Bailey Landscape was formed in 2009, when Rob Waddell rejoined the practice as Principal Landscape Architect. He leads a dedicated and enthusiastic team of landscape architects and urban designers with a wide range of expertise and experience. Our team originally built its landscape architectural reputation through designing exemplary landscapes in conjunction with all Guymer Bailey’s architectural projects for both public and private sector clients. Our extensive list of satisfied clients bears testimony to that reputation. However, Guymer Bailey Landscape now operates independently from Guymer Bailey Architects to offer clients specialised landscape architecture and urban design. We deliver quality outcomes, on time, within budget, and to client expectations.

We approach each project using a collaborative masterplanning approach to involve the entire school community - the staff, students, families and broader community - in the design process. This approach fosters a supportive working environment that maximises the creative development of sustainable design concepts and their evolution through masterplanning to detailed design and implementation. To create a sustainable future in our designs, Guymer Bailey link the natural and built environments through integrated landscape and architecture, transform spaces into places so they are contextually appropriate from an environmental, social and cultural perspective, celebrate the Australian landscape and characterises our love of the outdoors, and ensure our landscape designs follow the principles of Ecologically Sustainable Design (ESD).


RECENT PROJECTS


FREW PARK ARENA BRISBANE

The Arena’s design resembles no other ‘typical’ playground design; its complex architectural structure, unique in form and of monumental scale, has become the focus of ‘play’ experience. The theme of the Arena Play Structure is ‘deconstruction’, in that memories of the iconic Milton tennis stadium remain in symbiosis with contemporary Arena recreation. ‘Deconstruction’ is thus represented by large precast concrete panels of varying heights and angles; suspended concrete slabs; angled steel struts; steel mesh tunnels and barriers; and angular folded roof canopies arranged in an arc to enclose a central lawn space. Youngsters of different ages can climb all over, through, and around the deconstructed Arena to explore a series of play precincts which reflect spaces typically found in a stadium, such as the Grandstand, and the Commentary Box — a steel-mesh box suspended eight meters above the ground.


NOOSA TRANSIT CENTRE NOOSA

Noosa Junction Station stands as the proud result of a design team joining forces with its client to achieve the best for the Noosa community with this unique development for this exclusive beachside town. Most important was designing it to underscore a strong sense of sense of place for the site that reinforces Noosa’s distinct subtropical and coastal character. The $12 million project is now the transport hub of the area, served by buses, coaches and other tourist vehicles. The urban design language draws on the indigenous meaning of Noosa — ‘Place of Shade’ and uses shade structures and vegetation to filter pattern light into a series of outdoor spaces. These spaces are connected by an arbour structure which forms a physical axis through the development. The Noosa Junction Station is an example of an integrated and sustainable design solution: It is a place for people and celebrates Noosa’s sense of place; it promotes active transport by creating a safe and comfortable environment for bicycle users and pedestrians; and it enhances green amenity, using native vegetation to provide shade, and soften the built form.


GOLD COAST ARTS PRECINCT COMPETITION ENTRY GOLD COAST Guymer Bailey worked in collaboration with Kahrtel and Peter Hunt Architect to deliver a memorable and iconic cultural landmark that enhances the Gold Coast skyline by contrasting its elevated linearity in its submission for the Gold Coast Arts Precinct. The Gold Coast Cultural Centre design has, as its foundation, the premise that interest is not always created by the object that flashes the brightest or screams the loudest. That indeed, genuinely iconic structures or places are often the ones that look like they have a story to tell. They attract onlookers and passers-by and generate interest, with intrigue, before revealing the bigger picture.


BRISBANE SUPREME & DISTRICT COURTS BRISBANE The Brisbane Supreme & District Courts are built on the Queensland Place site, bounded by George, Roma and Turbot Streets in Brisbane’s CBD. The urban design of the Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law established the key site planning parameters for the project which contribute positively to the form and amenity of the city. The main building entrance is from the Square in keeping with the design and cultural tradition of Brisbane’s most prominent civic buildings. This provides the building with a ceremonial address that celebrates the formal, civil and judicial functions of the Court as well as its public domain program. The Courts varied landscapes include a large, lawn open space, a ‘deep soil’ area provided for a grove of Poincianas, a decomposed granite area and other planting areas all above a podium structure. Waterproofing, drainage and soil composition have required careful technical resolution in order to maximise opportunities for root growth and permeable drainage.


MAROOCHY ARTS & ECOLOGY CENTRE TANAHWA Guymer Bailey designed the landscape of the Maroochy Botanic Gardens Arts and Ecology Centre as both an educational experience and as the means for people to enjoy the natural features of the Botanic Gardens and surrounding bushland. The Centre has been created for all community members for social and cultural reasons; and all of this is attuned to the philosophy that ecology is at the heart of sustainability and is therefore crucial when cultivating such designs. The Sunshine Coast Regional Council, community and special interest groups now have the environment for workshops, education programs, meetings and artistic exhibitions. The design foregrounds the abiding connection between architecture and landscape architecture; the building and landscape designs become one in responding to the site’s topographical parameters. For example, the building’s internal spaces ease out to landscape courtyards creating flexible activity spaces taking advantage of the verdant aesthetics of the surrounding environment.

MAROOCHY ARTS & ECOLOGY CENTRE


KINGFISHER BAY RESORT AND VILLAGE FRASER ISLAND Kingfisher Bay Resort is surrounded by National Park on World Heritage listed Fraser Island. Our key challenge was to design the resort in harmony with the site without impacting on the environment. Our strategy was to employ a lightweight building system using materials that could be brought by barge from the mainland. The buildings are no higher that two storeys and constructed of hardwood framing, hardwood weatherboard walls and corrugated steel roofing supported on driven hardwood piles. Therefore merging with the environment rather than dominating it. The curved roof profiles correspond to the rolling treed sand dunes while the pools represent the natural lakes on the island. The design, whereby indoor and outdoor spaces flow seamlessly into each other, epitomises Guymer Bailey’s philosophy of integrating architecture and landscape. Sustainability is demonstrated by the insightful decision to choose thermo-symphonic natural “air conditioning” for the Main Hotel building, rather than traditional mechanical varieties. Such a facility complements the Resort’s coastal, tropical environment. The Hotel has 152 rooms on two levels arranged into two arcshaped wings. Numerous private villas and freehold housing blocks nestle into the dunes surrounding the main hotel. A shopping village, beach bar, backpacker’s hostel and tennis courts surround the hotel.

KINGFISHER BAY RESORT & VILLAGE


MARY CAIRNCROSS SCENIC RESERVE DISCOVERY CENTRE MALENY The Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve Discovery Centre is a new tourism and educational destination for the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Centre nestles sensitively into Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve’s complex nitophyll vine forest, one of the last remaining examples of this vegetation community that once covered the Blackall Ranges, while promoting views over the Glass House Mountains. Guymer Bailey’s Architects and Landscape Architects worked closely together with Focus Productions, the interpretive designers, to create an indoor/outdoor interpretive experience that enhances the Sunshine Coast Council’s educational and research aspirations for the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve.

MARY CAIRNCROSS SCENIC RESERVE DISCOVERY CENTRE


QUEENS PARK NATURE CENTRE IPSWICH

Guymer Bailey was employed by the Ipswich City Council to design the Stage 2 development of the Nature Centre. The design includes a disability code compliant path network that directs visitors through a variety of animal enclosures, native gardens, a cascading water course and ponds, and a stage with amphitheatre. Guymer Bailey involved specialist fauna experts in designing the Nature Centre’s animal enclosures to provide comfortable habitats for the animals, discrete viewing by the public, while better facilitating maintenance duties for Centre staff. Now that Stage 2 is complete, visitors can now see kangaroos, wallabies, emus, dingoes, wombats, quolls and reptiles including native snakes and frill-necked lizards. Sections of elevated hardwood boardwalks and bridges have been used to eliminate the need for stairs and steeply graded pathways. The landscaping has retained significant existing trees around the boardwalk sections by reducing the extent of earthworks required to achieve suitable pathway gradients. The Queens Park Nature Centre project stands as a showpiece of Guymer Bailey’s expertise in designing display and public recreation spaces, while also confirming our sensitivity to natural flora and fauna.

KIMBERLEY COLLEGE FLEXIBLE LEARNING AREA CARBROOK The Kimberley College Flexible Learning Area has been designed to foster a collaborative learning environment attuned to the College’s progressive teaching philosophy which prioritises the development of social and environmental values in its students. The architectural response provides a building layout combining adaptable indoor learning spaces with flexible and un-programmed outdoor spaces, to give students various opportunities for interaction, performance, collaboration and connection to nature. Careful attention was paid to environmental and sustainable design issues and the integration of the building and the adjoining landscape spaces. Much of Kimberley College site is natural Eucalypt bushland and koala habitat. Sensitive site planning located the buildings to minimise the clearing required for the building construction as well as for vehicle and pedestrian access. The large Eucalypts that needed to be felled were site sawn into large timer billets that were used in the landscape as seats. Seating was arranged to create outdoor classroom areas and as focus points for student social interaction. Lawn areas were kept to a minimum leaving extensive mulch areas that were replanted with plants indigenous to the site.

KIMBERLEY COLLEGE FLEXIBLE LEARNING AREA


KINGS BEACH POOL & FORESHORE REDEVELOPMENT CALOUNDRA Guymer Bailey’s Kings Beach Redevelopment at Caloundra blends modern design principles with Australia’s traditional beach-going way of life. The Kings Beach Redevelopment balances Caloundra’s sun and beach culture with an abundance of shade, shelter and colour offering residents and visitors something of their own. Redevelopment here meant converting an existing caravan park and car parking area into a ‘family beach’ destination. The design objective was to create an identifiable character and a memorable and timeless beach experience. The redevelopment was part of a five-stage program comprising a parkland and new carparking. In the parkland, a grassed amphitheatre fronts a double stage structure with public toilets. Other features include a play fountain, playgrounds, fitness stations, picnic and barbecue shelters, foreshore promenade and a remodelled ocean swimming pool.


MARYBOROUGH AQUATIC CENTRE MARYBOROUGH The landscape design for the Maryborough Aquatic Centre redevelopment strengthens the facility’s status as a valuable community recreational space which characterises Australians’ love of the outdoors and water-based activity. The Aquatic Centre’s redevelopment includes a new administration and facilities building, a new 50-metre pool, refurbishment of a 25-metre lap pool, a new hydrotherapy pool, a water-play pool, and landscaped recreation spaces. The landscape design is balanced and suitable for both active and leisurely recreation. The Water-play pool mixes a variety of water features such as interactive sprays and jets, a waterfall, and a flowing stream with vibrant colours. Children particularly will enjoy this fun-filled, imaginative space. At the opposite end of the Centre, large lawn areas with seating platforms and mounding cater more for relaxation. The Aquatic Centre’s design acknowledges Maryborough’s subtropical climate by providing large areas of sun shade under shelters and shade trees.


SORRENTO BEACH HOUSE MORNINGTON PENINSULA

The landscape design for the Sorrento Beach House takes reference from Sorrento’s beachscape characterised by its natural landscape - vast ocean views, rocky cliff faces and long stretches of sandy beach. The landscape comprises a variety of natural and contemporary spaces tied together by a refined palette of materials and locally endemic planting. A series of outdoor rooms provides the owners with flexibility for how they use their home’s external environments. Water elements guide the users experience through the various landscape spaces. Spatial experience is further defined by portals, manipulation of scale and vertical separation of spaces which frames views to the coastal environment in the distance.


SOUTH YARRA RESIDENCE MELBOURNE

The landscape design for the South Yarra residence completes the restoration of this prominent 19th century Melbourne property. The property’s garden has been rearranged to accommodate a new driveway and garage. Other areas of the garden have been re-purposed for a new pool, spa and pool house; outdoor dining gazebo; rear entertainment courtyard and meandering lawn spaces. Stone paving for courtyards, pathways and edging is befitting the Victorian era property and complements the restored heritage elements such as the entry gates and cast bronze water feature. Garden beds have been planted with ornamental native varieties coupled with flowering perennials to create a cottage garden aesthetic, rich in texture and sophisticated in colour.


SINNAMON VILLAGE RESIDENCE, BRISBANE

The Sinnamon Village Residence is defined by the strong connection between architecture and landscape. External spaces created in the building recesses have been considered as outdoor rooms with the internal layout of the house arranged to promote view lines to these spaces. The contemporary suburban landscape provides a functional lawn space, a vegetable garden, screen planting, outdoor entertainment area and swimming pool to satisfy the subtropical outdoor living requirements of the home’s residents.


FIG TREE POCKET RESIDENCE, BRISBANE

The Fig Tree Pocket Residence design renovation foregrounds the abiding connection between architecture and landscape architecture by blurring the rigid distinction between indoors and outdoors in responding to the home’s subtropical climate and the owner’s desired living conditions. Architectural intervention has seen the reprogramming of internal spaces; new timber flooring, and a new bay window large glazed sliding door panels permeate the rear facade to promote openness and connection to the backyard. The verdant backyard space has been redesigned as a modern courtyard framed by detailed timber elements and mosaic tiled feature walls placed inside the existing and well-established buffer planting. A water feature aligned with the internal hallway, forms the centrepiece of the space viewed across the lawn. An arbour and skillion roof provides weather protection to a large paved outdoor living space equipped with a modern outdoor kitchen.


DURANBAH RESIDENCE NORTHERN NSW HINTERLAND

The landscape design for the Duranbah Residence celebrates the “Australian bush” through enhancing the home’s picturesque setting on a hillside overlooking the northern New South Wales Coast. The acreage property, formerly a banana farm, backs onto a eucalypt forest reserve, a backdrop that inspires the landscape design. Guymer Bailey collaborated with the home’s enthusiastic owners to design a “native bush” garden where a variety of native plant species are showcased. At the rear of the pavilion-style house, we created a cottage garden theme overlooked by a rocky embankment. The cottage theme underscores a large paved courtyard space planted with a variety of ornamental and flowering native shrubs and groundcovers. A lawn area adjoins the courtyard and wraps around the side of the house from where coastal views are framed by carefully located trees. Shaded space between the home’s two main pavilions has been designed to simulate a rainforest gully filled with shade-loving native plants such as ferns, orchids, cordylines and lilies.


DAVID FLEAY WILDLIFE PARK AMPHITHEATRE BURLEIGH HEADS David Fleay Wildlife Park Amphitheatre (short version)The new outdoor amphitheatre at David Fleay Wildlife Park is a muchneeded dedicated show space to attract new audiences and target markets, such as school groups and local families. It provides David Fleay’s the opportunity to enhance its visitor’s natural experience, encourage close encounters with wildlife and facilitate QPWS ranger-led interpretive demonstrations, such as free-flight bird or animal shows. The amphitheatre’s design prioritises the experience of nature in its form, function and materiality. Beautifully crafted, artificial rock work terraces step down the embankment of Moon Dam to create the picturesque amphitheatre setting. Spectators are shaded by a simple skillion roof form finished with natural colours that blend with the surrounding bushland and new native gardens. The carefully planned stage setting adopts artificial rock work as its surface finish which is shaped to form a shallow pool, and waterfall for aquatic bird species. Artificial rock work has also been used for structures at each end of the stage to house sound and lighting controls and transportable pet packs for displayed fauna. The stage also incorporates an artificial tree perch for use to display the Park’s impressive birds of prey collection.

527 GREGORY TERRACE MULTI-RESIDENTIAL/MIXED USE BOWEN HILLS 527 Gregory Terrace will become a green oasis nestled within the busy hub of Bowen Hills, drawing inspiration from the lush vertical landscapes and tropical gardens of Singapore’s urban realm. The landscape considers pedestrian connections through the site to join the top of Brunswick Street to a new public plaza and adjoining development. It also creatively addresses separation of public spaces from private recreation space for residents. These private recreation spaces provide a number of features including: a large resort style pool with lap swimming, spa and water play elements; raised planters with subtropical planting; open space areas; and, outdoor dining spaces with BBQ’s and facilities. Vertical gardens and water features connect the ground plane with the building facade, and blur the distinction between architecture and landscape.

BUPA AGED CARE RUNAWAY BAY

The landscape design for the BUPA Runaway Bay Aged Care Facility plays an important role in transforming the care environment into a habitat for human beings that promotes quality of life for all. The landscape focuses on the choices and needs of the residents. It applies simple geometric forms to legibly arrange a variety of accessible and inaccessible areas for personal and therapeutic use, sensory appreciation, climate control and way finding. It balances the recreation and amenity requirements of the residents and their families, with the functional requirements of safety and care provision required for the Facility’s staff and management.

BUPA AGED CARE, RUNAWAY BAY


BUPA AGED CARE RANGEVILLE

Bupa Rangeville’s landscape design sits harmoniously in its suburban setting by referencing the character of its neighbouring environments. The landscape design addresses the street through appropriate selection of tree species and ornamental gardens in keeping with the suburban charm of Rangeville. The eastern side of the site draws reference from the existing Garnett Lehmann parkland and creekside character. The parkland ‘extends’ into the site with swathes of turf reaching through a permeable boundary fence. Native trees provide further canopy cover and visual connection to the park. A bio-retention zone simulates an ephemeral rocky water feature in the central courtyard of the site, referencing East Creek with clusters of tree ferns. The Facility’s internal courtyards integrate design elements that are beneficial for dementia care, including loop pathways, sheltered seating ‘nooks’, productive gardens, open lawn, water features and bird baths. These elements will provide stimulation and relaxation zones for residents with special needs.

SEVEN MILE BEACH RESORT, HOBART

The landscape design played an important role in creating a new image for the redeveloped Seven Mile Beach Resort. The Resort’s redevelopment has seen extensive upgrade to the property including a new entry feature and porte cochere, redesigned pool area, improved recreation facilities, and extensive garden plantings exclusively using endemic plant species. In doing so, the landscape design addresses the environment in which the Resort sits, and the dramatic way such environments change in the exposed and wild locations that typify Tasmania. The Resort’s existing buildings were upgraded, by adding courtyards to offer protection from the elements and allowing the Resort guests to be closer to the environment. New accommodation is arranged on the site for guests to best experience the landscape while also providing shelter and protection.

SEVEN MILE BEACH RESORT


TALLOWOOD CEMETERY, STAGE 3 DECEPTION BAY Visiting a loved one at a cemetery should be a positive experience. Guymer Bailey have therefore developed at Tallowood Cemetery, a serene and well-cared-for environment where such visits are likely. The expansion of Tallowood Cemetery at Deception Bay continually takes steps to improve the environment. The site’s amenities are built on a secluded environment where visitors can remember their loved ones in a sensitive setting. Guymer Bailey Landscape has worked collaboratively with Architectus to deliver Stage 3, involving a new lawn plot, the conversion of a grass-lined swale into a dry creek bed, a new viewing platform, and public seating. A natural open space has been converted into a new area for lawn plots which are accessed via an avenue of trees leading to public seating. This forms a spine through the lawned area leading to a new shelter structure concealing an existing culvert headwall and the grass swale. These new features resemble a subtropical dry creek bed that parallels a textured, coloured, concrete path with kerb edges. The design borrows from the surrounding bushland’s landscape, thus allowing a welcome transition from the built to the natural environment. Adopting the surrounding bushland in this way inspires in visitors a feeling of seclusion. Further enhancement is provided by the design of a plant palette to blend with the surrounding bushland and establish a discernible local character.

TALLWOOD CEMETERY STAGE 3


HENLEY SQUARE DESIGN COMPETITION HENLEY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA The City of Charles Sturt invited designers to submit proposals for Adelaide’s Henley Square Redevelopment. Guymer Bailey’s ‘Shifting Shorelines’ design focussed on reviving the Henley charm, and recalling the traditional meaning of arriving at, living and enjoying the Henley seaside experience. Guymer Bailey’s design foregrounds sense of place and stregthens site character. The integration of an extended jetty structure draws from the traditional remmnants of the traditional jetty pavilion. It’s verticality provides a street presence for the Jetty Square and activates the main pedestrian entry into the space, thus reconfirming the Jetty’s axis and connection to both the sea and urban life. The design reconfigured Henley Square, so as to reacquaint it with the natural rhythm of the waves. Both the pattern and rhythm are represented on the groundplane by defining different activity spaces, influencing people movement, and negotiating changes in level. The Square’s commercial activity edge was reintegrated into the development by reinforcing the seaside village feel. Urban umbrellas and shades of varying size and colour define the fringes and welcome it to for part of the place.

7 SENSES STREET DAY, BRISBANE

The Seven Senses Street was an entry for design competition which sought design solutions to improve underutilised spaces in our cities. The design, applied to a case-study suburban street, aims to engage the seven human senses in order to reclaim the street from cars for its residents. The Seven Senses Street showcases ideas and design interventions that are sustainable, flexible, adaptable, multigenerational and cost effective. It establishes the premise that a design that truly considers our 7 senses will not only improve accessibility of our neighbourhood now and in the future, but will greatly enhance the liveability and daily enjoyment for all residents, every day. It is hoped that the Seven Senses Street will be an exemplar for communities all over the world on how to reclaim their street and build true inclusion.

SEVEN SENSES STREET DAY


NATIONAL WORKER’S MEMORIAL DESIGN COMPETITION, CANBERRA A nation-wide design competition for the National Workers Memorial in Canberra called for memorial designs to commemorate and remember the lives of those Australian that have been lost through a workplace tragedy. Guymer Bailey’s design reflects this though a simple abstract form brought more acutely in focus by the materials it uses. Solid concrete and granite blocks of varying height and rectangular shape are laid with apparent randomness but fitting onto the gridded ground plane. These blocks read as individual elements when viewed from up close; however, when viewed from a distance, the blocks combine to form an abstract depiction of a city skyline — a symbolic representation of community and what our work can build when Australians unite. The memorial is designed as a place that visitors can ‘experience’ rather than just ‘see’ a monument. Visitors meander through the space between the polished concrete and stone block elements that have been engraved with messages of safety, and safety-related information. Visitors’ movement is guided by a spiralling curved line set into the concrete pavement. This line is illuminated by yellow light strips as a reference to the significance of the colour yellow to identification workplace safety. The spiral line also takes visitors into the reflective space that forms the centrepiece of the memorial. The memorial is designed for timelessness that rises above fashion and possesses an aesthetic quality that does not deteriorate with age. The permeable arrangement of elements provides vistas into the immediate landscape setting and beyond. The pavement grid is aligned on axis with Parliament House on Capital Hill. This acknowledges the association of the Australian government and its workers from the past, present and future.

He has been involved with landscape design, collecting, propagating and growing Australian plants for nearly 50 years and his particular interest in rainforest plants and bush tucker plants led to him writing a few of his own books on the topic. The books typically focus on how to utilise Australian native rainforest plant species in landscape design. There is also helpful tips on maintenance, care and cultivation of a rainforest garden and bush tucker found in the Australian native rainforests. Bush tucker has been of special interest to Ralph, ever since he did the landscape design at Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island in 1989. Ralph has written numerous articles on rainforest plants, bush tucker and ecologically sensitive design. He is also author of ‘Perfumed and Aromatic Australian Plants’ and co-author with Julie Lake of ‘Creating an Australian Rainforest Garden’.

PROJECT NAME


GOONDIWINDI NATURAL HERITAGE & WATER PARK GOONDIWINDI Guymer Bailey was engaged to produce a strategic framework and masterplan design for the Goondiwindi Natural Heritage & Water Park. The redirection of part of the existing creek floodway created a permanent water body. The Water Park was designed for a variety of water sports including kayaking and skiing. The Masterplan included designated picnic areas, public amenities, open recreation spaces. A significant part of the landscape works involved researching the local plant communities, the wetlands and the Botanic Gardens collection for inclusion in this project. Large sections of degraded pasture land, adjoining the channel, were reclaimed and revegetated as restored bushland.

GOONDIWINDI NATURAL HERITAGE & WATER PARK


GONDWANA RAINFOREST SANCTUARY, BRISBANE This project was designed to present rainforest flora and fauna as a tourist facility on the Southbank site (post Expo ‘88) in Brisbane. The two and three storey structure was built from sculpted concrete to simulate a basalt crater with streams, waterfalls and caves. Covered by a steel mesh and cable canopy, hung from steel trusses external to the canopy, meant there was no roosting / perching sites for the birds other than in the trees within the Sanctuary. Advanced rainforest plans were collected, propagated and planted in the Sanctuary to represent rainforest communities from Tasmania to Cape York. Fauna from these regions was released into the enclosure. Elevated and ground level walkways tracked visitors through the various regions and displays, emersing them in a world of Australian botanical beauty.
