South of Christchurch, the subdivision of Stonebrook is 20 minutes from the central city. r+m provided full urban design and landscape architecture services focusing on accessible open spaces and a well-connected, pedestrian-oriented neighbourhood.
r+m's Stonebrook design concept is based on the local rural environment. The natural surroundings are reflected in the layout, planting, and hardscape materials, which includes river stone and timber.
A linear park runs the development's entire length. Extensive reserves and waterways, a hazelnut grove, pocket parks, playgrounds, and a green village set a new benchmark for medium density residential living.
The involvement of r+m throughout the project enables the realization of their original vision. This ensures the identity of Stonebrook, and the rich character of the landscape reflects its rural environment.
