East Quarter Hurstville - Stage 2 Landscape Design
Location Hurstville, New South Wales
Client Brookfield Multiplex
Project Duration 2008
CONTEXT was commissioned to design the landscape for the mixed use development working in conjunction with Kann Finch Architects. The landscape incorporates the major public domain streetscapes, Central Plaza and Link Road Park and a number of landscaped courtyards, terraces and roof gardens above the carpark structure.
The Central Plaza is intended to be active, surrounded by ground level retail. The main feature of the Plaza is the raised mounded lawn which provides a flexible space for passive and active uses. The water feature includes an artistic display interpreting the history of the site.
One of the main functional objectives of the design is to be flexible and adaptable for day time, night time and events such as markets and an outdoor cinema.
The design aims to increase deep soil planting and reduce potable water usage incorporating stormwater collection and reuse.
