"A community of innovators, in a riverside garden, in a city"
The Townsville North Rail Yards project provides a strong and inspired conceptual framework to guide the future redevelopment of this important waterfront site in Far-North Queensland.
This project was developed through a close collaboration of both landscape architect and architect, working together to deliver a fully integrated, high quality urban design which not only accommodates future growth but greatly improves local amenity and liveability within an existing urban fabric.
Great landscape architecture often involves embracing elements of the natural environment to drive forward design thinking. When applied in an urban design situation, opportunities arise to change the focus of a city.
