  • A place to live,<br> work and play.
  • In collaboration with Cox Architecture, Hindmarsh has designed a landmark mixed-use precinct on the northern corner of Easty and Wilbow Streets in Canberra’s Woden Town Centre.

    The project design has formed from many concepts to meet the vision for the site to create not only a development, but a precinct that focusses on connectivity and face to face interaction, where people can meet either intentionally or by chance and build community through common spaces.

    Identified by the ACT Government as a ‘marker site’ this allows for a development featuring signature buildings with height and form. The precinct is proposed to include a range of features in keeping with its marker site status. The proposal has been informed by extensive work and a range of design options undertaken over several years, including consultation with the ACT Planning Directorate and neighbours.

    Cox Architecture went back to first principles in developing a precinct design around a central podium, that draws residents and visitors to a light-filled green space to connect with the residences above. Thoughtfully designed slender buildings over the podium will maximise cross-ventilation and solar aspect for occupants whilst minimising their impact on surrounding buildings.

    Shadow studies have been undertaken on neighbouring buildings to understand the existing and future solar gain once the development is complete. These solar studies will be available for public viewing and feedback as part of both the Pre-Development Application Consultation process and during Development Assessment.

    Hindmarsh is in talks with several retail offerings that will best suit the area. This is likely to include a small supermarket of up to 800 square metres [and smaller shop and office spaces] – providing needed services and amenity with longevity in mind to ensure a good outcome for the surrounding Woden Green precinct.

    The site, formally known as Block 13 Section 81 Phillip, is well connected to active and public transport. It adjoins popular cycleways that connect to all of Canberra, and pedestrian walking paths linking the hospital to the Woden Town Centre, along with parks, sporting grounds and Woden’s transport hub. Living in close proximity to great amenity promotes active living and lifestyle.

    The project team recognises the significance of the site and the opportunity to deliver a considered conceptual design that encapsulates liveability, functionality, and is sympathetic to the surrounding development and existing community. Cox Architects, Redbox Design Group, and Canberra Town Planning bring together an outstanding track record of placemaking and conscientious design.

    We are undertaking a final Community Consultation session to seek your input on the proposed development. To find out more information and to be kept up to date, please register your interest.

  • In collaboration with Scott Carver architects, Hindmarsh has designed a boutique offering on the southern corner of Easty and Wilbow Streets in Canberra’s Woden Town Centre. The project design has formed from many concepts to meet the vision for the site and its rapidly evolving surrounds.

    The proposal has been informed by extensive work and a range of design options undertaken over several years, including consultation with the ACT Planning Directorate and neighbours. The resulting design proposed includes a mix of loft and single-level apartments, including ground level apartments that can be adapted for commercial use.

On-site amenity for residents is also supported by a podium garden and on-site car parking.
