In association with Croxon Ramsay Architects, ACLA prepared a concept design for Boroondara City Council’s new Community Hub. The proposed landscape design provides seamless integration of the new building with the surrounding public open space and broader public realm through provision of a spill out deck and tiered seating. Open space is maximised with an open grassed area and shade trees to improve amenity, flexibility, permeability, safety and cater for a diverse range of users. A war memorial is also incorporated on the prominent south west corner of the park. An option is also proposed to improve the pedestrianisation of Centre Way through a conversion to one way traffic, introduction of a shade tree boulevard, water sensitive urban design initiatives, feature paving and outdoor dining. In addition to designing the public areas ACLA also prepared concept designs for three nature based outdoor play areas catering for the various age groups and abilities of the children attending the Greythorn Early Learning Centre.
