Jonathan Tonuri, Project Director at APP Corporation
“I’ve known and worked with Nader Ibrahim since 2008 when O2 Landscape Architecture were engaged on the Robina Hospital Expansion Project, a $287M redevelopment of an existing hospital facility for Queensland Health.
In our role as Project Manager / Project Director, APP Corporation managed the overall design, documentation and construction of this significant and challenging project over a four year period.
During that time and throughout all stages, Nader and his team at O2 Landscape Architecture provided a stand-out service and were integral in delivering a project which is considered a flag-ship of Queensland Health.
“O2 Landscape Architecture provided a stand-out service and were integral in delivering a project which is considered a flag-ship of Queensland Health.”
Queensland Health’s brief to the Project Team was to deliver a unique and appropriate environment for both patients and staff. O2 Landscape Architecture more than met this brief via a focused, considered and integrated mix of hard and soft landscape solutions across the site.
Rejuvenation of the existing site was complex and required Nader to consider an array of balanced solutions which were sensitive to budgetary constraints yet remained functional and able to be supported for the longer term. Unique design concepts and innovative material selection by O2 Landscape Architecture allowed the project to retain valuable spaces, which are all too often emitted from the scope and budget.
At all times I found Nader and his staff to be responsive, passionate and collaborative in delivering this award winning project.”

Tim Condon, M&A Design Manager at Laing O’Rourke
“Working with consultants can be very demanding at times. For O2 however, it was an absolute pleasure because they were dedicated, prompt and passionate about their service from start to finish. Thanks for your efforts on the M&A Project and I hope we can work together again.”

David Parker, Project Manager at Australand
“I worked with Nader and his team on the COVA development in Hope Island. COVA is a signature mixed-use development consisting of varied residential product directly adjacent to a system of man-made waterways in the Gold Coast. The land-holding for the future estate initially consisted of reclaimed land with no existing vegetation. Nader and his team were therefore given a blank canvas with a brief to produce a high-impact landscape solution for the project that would endure.
“…high-impact landscape that would endure.”
Nader and his team have produced a high-quality result and were a pleasure to work with.
Nader’s personal approach to the landscape design extended well beyond simple and standard design elements and plant selections to “fill in the gaps” surrounding future buildings. Nader instead sought to create a soft and hardscape design solution that addressed the future built-form, activated street frontages and promoted linkage between dwellings and open space and foreshore areas. Prior to commencing design, Nader took a very hands-on approach to the estate and sought to understand in detail the client’s future built-form design intent, marketing strategy and development vision for the estate. Nader then tailored a landscape solution to address the client’s vision.
Throughout the design development phase, Nader provided multiple design and specification options ranging from elements as significant as the estate entry feature concept through to street-lighting and paving stone alternatives. The iterative approach that Nader adopted allowed us to tailor the landscape design to meet our desired objectives and provided great clarity and comfort as to the ultimate result that would be achieved.”
“The iterative approach allowed us to tailor the landscape design to meet our desired objectives and provided great clarity and comfort as to the ultimate result that would be achieved.”
Nader and his team did a commendable job managing the landscape contractor and ensuring that the construction of the project met the client’s specifications and high expectations.
I would not hesitate to recommend Nader and the team at O2 architecture for any landscape design project.”
David Handley, Director at Mosaic Property Group
“O2 Landscape Architecture consistently provides the advice we need at the time we need it. They’re proactive, understand build-ability and have background knowledge of local authority requirements. We’re happy to have O2 Landscape Architecture as a regular member of our project teams.”

Sam Vecchio, Director at Vecchio Property Group
“It would be a pleasure to provide a testimonial to you and for your company O2 Landscape Architecture.
Your company has been involved in a number of previous residential multi-unit developments for Vecchio Property Group, the latest at Rive Apartments, Albion (94 residential apartments), and the Quest Serviced Apartments (132 room hotel).”
“…met our design timeframes, and then was able to follow through in obtaining prompt approvals with the relevant authorities.”
Your team was obliging in initially working to our landscaping budgets whilst designing, met our design timeframes, and then was able to follow through in obtaining prompt approvals with the relevant authorities. On completion of landscaping we felt that the plants chosen were commensurate with the locality and quality of the buildings.
I would have no hesitation in using Nader and his team again.”
