Alexander Streetfood Park | $700k | Unbuilt Scheme

Alexander Streetfood Park is an active fusion of streetfood, public space, green space and public art. Proposed for the existing rear service and carpark area of the heritage listed Alexander Building Complex in Mount Lawley, this scheme establishes a local community based gathering point at the heart of an existing retail centre. The public space activated by a number of takeaway streetfood tenancies located on its perimeter provides a number of functional as well as sculptural alfresco seating elements also incorporating native landscaping. The pitched parapet gables which are a dominant visual element of the existing centre are referenced throughout the design of the newstreetscape furniture. 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.
