A dense urban forest, captivating green spine and inviting rooftop garden welcome you home to The Canopy on Normanby. The new, mixed-use community in South Melbourne is designed by Hayball to set a new standard for authentic, meaningful sustainability.

Nature weaves around The Canopy, ascending from the new forest park through to the green spine that interlaces the building right up to the podium-level residents' garden and beyond to the Level 20 rooftop. It's an approach that's guided by Gamuda Land's biophilic vision and a desire to connect the site with its history.

The green front door to The Canopy, Johnson Street park is a meeting space for the local community to gather, have picnics, sit in the sun and relax in the shade to escape the heat of summer.

It's a place that takes inspiration from the Traditional Owners to encourage people to engage with nature and the diverse species of native plants - plants that have always grown in this place and celebrate the seasons with colour, fragrance and texture.
