Alexander Streetfood Park | $700k | Unbuilt Scheme

Alexander Streetfood Park is a fusion of streetfood, public space, green space and public art. Located in the existing rear service and carpark area of the heritage listed Alexander Building Complex in Mount Lawley, this scheme establishes a community based gathering point at the heart of an existing retail centre. The new public space activated by a number of takeaway streetfood tenancies located on its perimeter provides a number of sculptural and functional alfresco seating elements which also incorporate landscaping. The existing pitched parapet gables which are a dominant visual element of the existing centre are borrowed and repeated throughout the new contemporary streetscape furniture additions. This scheme also addresses a number of existing functional issues at the centre including the organisation of the bin store, loading dock and short term parking.
