Seven storeys above the urban pavements of inner city Sydney’s Darlinghurst, two courtyard gardens were the missing element to an award-winning facility.  These are now multi-functional, multi-sensory environments of ease, with several special elements: Thomas Heatherwick Spinning Chairs, a bespoke Broadcroft Design ‘Love Bench’, Rubber Softfall flooring, a ‘Family Table’, giant chalk board wall, sculpture and, of course, plants.
