Shaped to emulate the surrounding landscape, this sculpture stands proud at the entry to Paradise Lakes. It's soft, waving form is combined with a custom graded paint to create an organic structure that seems to almost unfold and glisten in the afternoon light. Developed in close collaboration with Urbis and Paradise Lakes themselves, this Entry Feature and Signage Element are a testament to the greater vision of the area and set the tone for the ongoing development.
