A hybrid community place; urban square + activated main street
The site provided a number of challenges including a slight slope, difficult traffic connections and residential development in close proximity. The challenge was to create a large, highly efficient and useable car park, with broad convenient ramped connections between on grade and basement levels, a hybrid building creating a large square and a main streetscape, and both a short term and long term road network.
This shopping centre occupies about 1.165 HA in a precinct of some 707 HA in one of the fastest growing in the North-West Priority Growth Area. The Scott Carver team diligently worked through from the concept to detail documentation and was tendered with a high degree of resolution as a D& C contract.
There is innovative lighting and economy of construction, with a large, highly efficient and useable car park, with broad convenient ramped connections between on grade and basement levels. It is a hybrid community place; both an urban square and an activated main street. It is an engaging resolution of the walkable and the vehicular – of big convenience and bespoke localism. Ample and changing daylight makes the space alive within the static built form while the cantilevered awnings provide comfort and the setting for activation.

Innovative lighting and economy of construction in cantilevered awnings, and to act as a town centre. A tension between both courtyard/carpark facing retail and street facing retail has created a centre that addresses the public domain in an active and engaging manner.
