Located at the iconic Mersey Bluff Plaza on Tasmania’s North West coast, ‘The Bluff’ as it is commonly known by locals, is a popular spot for swimming, sunbathing, picnics in the park and Surf Life Saving.
The upgrade was welcomed by surf club members and the local community with a number of family friendly sites including a new playground, barbecue facilities, public plaza and car park created as part of the redevelopment.
The project was designed by Hansen Partnership in Melbourne whose design team was awarded the $10,000 prize for the landscape design.
The project utilised non directional pavers of varying colours to create a coastal inspired design where colours transition from the foreshore pavement to the sand and sea beyond.
The versatile public area and walk way was created using 6,500 square metres of Adbri Masonry’s Trihex® and Quartz Stone pavers with the architects implementing a flowing design to blend and complement the surrounding beach and ocean.
“Adbri Masonry was very pleased to be involved with this development which is so significant to the local community of Devonport and Northern Tasmania,” explained Karl Wood, Marketing Manager, Adbri Masonry.
“Hansen Partnership and the Davenport Bluff Precinct project are very worthy winners of the 2014 Bruze Mackenzie Landscape Award.”
The Think Brick awards were established in 2005 and encourage architects to rethink brick while recognising design excellence and innovation in the architectural use of clay brick and concrete masonry.
