Project Title: Waterfront Geelong

Masterplanning and detailed design, documentation of the extensive redevelopment of the Geelong foreshore.

The project has transformed the waterfront, creating new boulevards, promenades, harbours, event spaces, cafes and public parks. It has been a significant catalyst for private investment and a major focus of community pride.

The project also facilitated major pedestrian and visual connections between the CBD and the bay, ensuring the city was once again connected to Corio Bay. A significant and celebrated feature of the project has been the site responsive design and integrated artworks which reinforced Geelong’s unique waterside location.

"A strong relationship with the elemental qualities of water, wind, sun and sky."
