Located within the Sunshine Principal Activity Centre, on the former Sunshine Harvester site, the brief for the project emphasised the need to design a high quality public space which would activate and enliven the area, providing improved pedestrian accessibility and passive surveillance as well as accommodating community events. A key feature of the design is the ‘wave’ form tiered seating which addresses the interface and level differences between the proposed building and the streetscape as a design opportunity. The space also includes street trees, feature planting, feature paving, seats and generous bicycle parking to encourage alternative forms of transport to the site. Plants and materials incorporated are in keeping with surrounding areas serving to integrate the space within the wider context of the Sunshine Activity Centre.
