Botanica is the first of several multi-storey apartment buildings to be built along the Fullarton Road frontage as part of the wider Glenside development. Its footprint was designed in conjunction with that of Building 2, Grace, with apartments wrapping a Landscaped Square for the enjoyment of residents.

This square also provides vehicle access to basement parking. Botanica overlooks a new park and picnic grounds to the south, the Adelaide CBD to the north-west and the Adelaide Hills to the East.

Sandstone finishes differentiate the ground floor courtyard apartments from the stunning white cladding above, whilst also picking up the materiality of the heritage buildings on site. Bronze fins screens break up the facade and provide some privacy and shading to balconies. The lobby finished with stone, organic tiled walls and leather leads to naturally lit and ventilated corridors on every floor.
