Crown Group’s expanding property portfolio has set a new standard in urban living with its latest offering, Waterfall by Crown Group. Centred on biophilic design, Waterfall provides a unique opportunity to live close to the city in a nature-inspired haven.

Upon entering the central courtyard, a striking waterfall surrounded by lush rainforest plants provides an instant connection to nature. The sound of the flowing water and the array of rainforest plants across the building façade evokes a feeling of being immersed in a tropical paradise. The natural wood textures, shapes that echo nature and the tropical lagoon complement the waterfall to provide residents with a resort-style home where the city beyond is forgotten.

The hidden jewel in this development is a rooftop cinema and lounge space with vast city views. The cinema screen is shrouded by a 6 metre tall green wall, provide a biophilic connection to the private rooftop space.

Our role

Junglefy was engaged with Crown Group to provide consultancy on the initial design of the waterfall green wall. Once the final design was confirmed, Junglefy’s specialised construction team created the bespoke green walls on the waterfall, the cinema and various planted areas throughout the complex. Junglefy provides ongoing maintenance as required and season dependent.

Key Innovation

Incorporating a green wall within a waterfall had not been done before so early collaboration in the design development phase helped to refine the concept and bring it to life.
The final design included 4 large waterfalls that can be controlled independently to cater for variances in wind conditions and achieve the best outcome for the garden.
