Kingston Foreshores
Location: Kingston, Canberra, AUS

A competition entry for the development of the Kingston Foreshore on a historic parcel of land fronting Lake Burly Griffin, the aim of the proposal was to encourage best practice environmentally sustainable development. To this end virtually all buildings on the site were retained for refurbishment rather than reconstruction. The use of an integrated water recycling system with onsite treatment plants and purification read beds. Strong links integrate the new development with the surrounding residential and commercial areas. A new shared pedestrian and vehicular spine runs for the full length of the site and becomes the principle address for the new housing development which line its edges. A waterside restaurant and entertainment precinct becomes the focal point of the development.
