Lakes Edge at Pelican Waters

Caloundra Sunshine Coast

Client: BCI Group

Year: 2017

As a residential community precinct framed by a luscious bushland environment, the unique landscape design at Lakes Edge at Pelican Waters played an integral role in the overall project design. Inspired by the surrounding waterways, ML Design’s landscape design captured the essence of the location and created a space that complemented the Sunshine Coast lifestyle.

The landscape design works include children’s water play facilities and a unique 18-hole mini golf course for residents and the community to enjoy. These facilities generate revenue for the club, as well as providing a functional and unique place for the community to gather.

The surrounding bushland of the project created a unique opportunity for the ML Design team to integrate the project’s landscape seamlessly into its surrounds. Our designs also successfully blended the Pelican Waters Golf Club into the new residential precinct to create a cohesive project.

Through the successful masterplanning process lead by the ML Design studio, our landscape design team was engaged to continue on the project and build upon the innovative solutions driven by our masterplanners.

In order to deliver a strategic landscape design solution the ML Design team considered a number of environmental and ecological overlays – including the conservation of certain species and habitats. Our team was also guided by various waterway constraints within the site, and this was taken into consideration for our final design.

The golf club house also required an element of revenue generation through its landscape design, and the studio’s designs achieved this through the integration of mini-golf facilities, landscaped event pavilions, the wedding terrace and beautifully landscaped gardens.

The landscape design solution that ML Design delivered worked to create a community hub with a focus on recreation and usable community facilities – we built a place for the community to spend time together. Our designs provided a range of passive and active recreational facilities that also generated income for the Pelican Waters Golf Club.
