Commonwealth Games Village

,

The 2014 games presented a fantastic opportunity to design an exemplar urban village. Our challenge was to create a mid-urban environment by focusing on placemaking, density and variety. We reacted to the unique aspects of each part of the site in relation to the existing urban fabric and the great opportunity offered by the river frontage.

Splitting the site into identifiable, compact, human-scale realms created complexity and a rich grain that focused on a sequence of spaces clearly defined by built form. These spaces have the qualities and intimacy of towns which have grown organically, and a positive and distinctive sense of place which does not compromise privacy.
