Description

BVN has developed a design solution that will create a strong residential community on the site and will form an important component of the new urban realm within the Sydney Olympic Park Masterplan.

The proposal utilises the requirement for a view corridor in the SOPA Masterplan to create a major garden through the site. The four buildings are positioned around this garden, two define its western edge and the other two are located perpendicular to it, to create a generously scaled landscape that opens out to the north and maximises the views of the existing fig trees on the north east. The garden forms the main entrance to the site as well as providing a wonderful amenity for the residents in both use and outlook. The scheme offers a high quality design solution that will create a strong residential community on the site itself and will form an important component of the new urban realm within the Sydney Olympic Park Masterplan. It:

• Meets the Design Objectives established by Mirvac for the site

• Meets the general intent of the planning controls on the site as defined in the SOPA Masterplan

• Creates a strong and cohesive streetscape through positioning of the buildings and the use of scale and materiality

• Retail spaces are provided with the frontage and entrance on Australia Avenue, providing good visibility for passers-by and enabling an active edge to this streetscape
