Blundells Cottage – Landscape Documentation of Canberra’s oldest building

Blundells-Cottage-landscape-documentation

We are currently working with the National Capital Authority documenting the landscape setting for Blundells Cottage.

This historic cottage is Canberra’s oldest building and can be found on the northern shore Lake Burley Griffin.

Based on the Masterplan we prepared in 2014, this project is the first stage of construction works which aim to create a setting that reflects the historic use of the cottage as a farmhouse sustained by livestock and crops.

Adjacent to the cottage we’ve designed a courtyard to accommodate small gatherings and tours.

To encourage visitors, new interpretive walks have been added. Planted areas will reflect the boundaries of the former farm site.
