Meet the maker: Claire Martin interviewed on the design for Seafarers Rest

01 Sep 2021

OCULUS Associate Director Claire Martin recently sat down with developer Riverlee to discuss the landscape design of Seafarers Rest, a new park on Melbourne’s Yarra River/Birrarung that pays homage to the waterfront site’s rich maritime history.

Understanding and respecting the history of the original site and the vision of a sustainable future, our regeneration of the site focused on a less is more approach.

The project itself involves bringing a 3,500 square metre public park to the city of Melbourne, and crafting the landscapes for the city's first international hotel-branded residences.
