Positioned as Canberra’s most prestigious residential development, the Bridgepoint complex is located in Kingston Foreshore on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin. The development comprises of seven luxury lakeside residences, three whole-floor penthouses and 35 apartments. Junglefy designed and installed the extensive green roof over the lower level apartments so as to provide an improved outlook for the penthouses and other apartments that overlook the roof.

Our Role

Junglefy was provided with a conceptual design from Colin Stewart Architects and then undertook technical and plant design to realise the architects’ vision. Junglefy oversaw the installation of the waterproofing and the subsequent leak detection testing then installed the green roof drainage elements, growing media, plants and pebble ballast.

Key Innovation

Higher density planting with mixed plant palette (including ground covers that act as mulch), no mulch.
