Breathing Wall at 485 LaTrobe Street Wins 'Urban Green Space' Award 

APPF Commercial and design partner Junglefly were awarded the 'Urban Green Space Award' at the Australian Institute of Horticulture's Annual Awards in recognition of the recently constructed Breathing Wall at 485 La Trobe Street, Melbourne. 

The Breathing Wall, the largest of its kind in Australia, was designed and constructed as part of the Fund's recent lobby refurbishment at the asset. 

The Deputy Lord Mayor of Melbourne, Arron Wood said: “The refurbishment at 485 La Trobe St demonstrates Lendlease’s ability to reposition an asset with sustainability as the first principle, guiding positive changes to improve working conditions, health, and wellbeing for the occupants here.” 

The Australian Institute of Horticulture annually presents awards in recognition of achievement of excellence in professional horticultural practice. The Urban Green Space Award recognises the importance of combining skills, effort and determination across a number of disparate groups of individual, industry and organisations to present a case for the preservation of existing and development of future green spaces and the specific value of water.
