The result – urban reactivation of Sydney Central Station by bringing people and nature back into the city and creating a prized urban precinct.
Multifunctional landscapes are able to turn monofunctional transit infrastructure into vibrant places that connect people to nature and opens the city to unlock commercial and residential value.
The infrastructure as landscape approach transforms the site into a meeting place in a generous and memorable setting where you can be surrounded by nature in the middle of the city.
Mounded landscapes with windbreak trees create a protected environment for people to picnic and play, creating a much-needed antidote to the high density, shaded inner city.
Fruit trees and market gardens allow locals to grow their own food and teach people about food security, reconnecting neighbourhoods and communities and encouraging healthy, resilient lifestyles while creating new economic opportunities and connecting people to nature.
