Scott Carver have been engaged by Combined Projects (Kirrawee) Pty Ltd to create a sustainable, mixed-use development that realised the sites public and commercial opportunity while protecting the highly valued ecological, cultural and heritage components of the existing site. The use of the heritage based industrial materials enhances the site’s unique qualities and builds on an already rich historical and cultural value to the Kirrawee community.
Comprised of over four hectares of land and home to one of the most endangered and protected vegetation communities in the Sydney Region, the former Kirrawee Brick site has endured significant transformation over time.
The design was inspired by the original heritage and historical use of the site. This former Brick Pit has undergone significant change and transformation over a number of decades now. Scott Carver’s team of landscape architects wanted to reconnect the open space back to its original purpose. The extensive use of industrial materials such as brick, timber and stone assist in re-establishing this connection. In addition to the revegetation of the native endemic STIF forest, the aim is to transform Kiln Park into a place where the local community can come together and get a sense of the site's past, present and future.
