Precinct redevelopment, 1999 – 2003
This project is an urban reconfiguration of two lanes, a car park and a toilet block into a meaningful civic space. The site is connected to a busy commercial strip and artery road in Brunswick, just north of Melbourne. The intention of the design was to offer some respite for workers and residents and to provide a space for local markets and celebrations. It took time for the project’s completion but the mayor declared it open in December 2003, and a demonstration of traditional Greek dancing followed.
