A celebration of the “Dress Circle” locale with panoramic vistas over Bondi Beach.
As part of Waverley Council’s proposed ‘Walking Strategy’ to improve pedestrian access to popular destinations throughout the LGA, Notts Avenue was identified as a key place serving as the main conduit between Bondi Beach and the Coastal Walk.
Working collaboratively with Council, we provided expertise, advocating for a significant, cohesive, high-quality public domain which celebrates the panoramic coastal setting whilst redefining the street as a welcoming comfortable place for residents and visitors.
With creative thinking and appreciation of technical challenges, we identified opportunities in the creation of a landscape that was more than a “Shared Zone” – Notts Avenue was affectionately re-branded as “Notts Lookout” by the design team.
Working from the bedrock up, investigations were undertaken to ensure the team was well informed of the site’s geotechnical integrity, strata formation, water management, coastal erosion impacts, local flora and fauna communities, heritage and ecological values.
Our highly skilled landscape architects lead a pro-active team to ensure a successful conversion of a depleting street profile and environment into a welcoming, open public domain place capable of hosting pedestrian volumes with dignity and style, whilst allowing the safe movement of vehicles to, from and within the space.
