Transforming a car oriented environment
The existing site is comprised of big box accommodation alongside a vast amount of parking. The site is unattractive and doesn’t respond to the transport connectivity and shift in the community from car users to increasing use of public transport and pedestrian journeys.
Connectivity through green spaces
We envisioned a new community which revitalises the existing retail and energises the surrounding community. The 2.4-hectare masterplan positions the residential towers alongside a new green connection, generating a sense of place and connection to the environment. A hierarchy of spaces is established using courtyards within each block; this provides residents and visitors with a sense of privacy while outside.
