Acting as catalyst to the larger centre, one wing and its forecourt look to return a vibrancy and bring much needed shape to a neglected dining and fresh produce precinct of the Forest Lake Shopping Centre.
A richly fluctuating landscape offers an array of courts, shady groves, stairs, seating pockets and platforms, all coupled with gardens for joy and lawns for play.
The sight and sound of ponds, channels and cascades threads the plaza together on axis with the existing fig tree and clocktower. Working together with a new planted colonnade a its perimeter, a civic sense is brought to the square and dignifies it as a destination in itself.
Taking cues from the grand axial atrium of the centre, a concertina ceiling suspends a steel frame of signage, lighting and greenery to order and demarcate the spaces below.
