Elements of Byron Resort
Situated in the beautiful coastal township of Byron Bay, Elements of Byron is a unique eco-resort destination.
Locally-sourced materials and endemic plants were a key feature of the design and have helped create a resort experience that’s in tune with the Belongil Beach location. Rehabilitation and habitat preservation provide natural learning experiences that guests take home with them, while simultaneously enhancing local eco-systems.
Much consideration was given to the site’s position within the hydrological network of Belongil & Cumbebin Swamplands, Belongil Creek and the Pacific Ocean. The landscape design response allows Elements to contribute to the restoration and support of local waterways and land.
An in-depth community and local authority consultation process was adopted when developing the design for Elements of Byron. Byron Shire Council was presented with a landscape vision for the site and several workshop sessions were undertaken to maintain an open dialogue and seek valuable feedback.
A website was also developed with key information on the landscape and environmental integration strategy for community feedback, while a public exhibition was undertaken to facilitate informal discussions with local businesses, community members and tourists.
