The Park on the Hill project creates a series of linked social spaces within an existing car park at the University of Newcastle. The project plays an important role within the University and in particular the Hunter side of Campus, by creating a lively ‘Student Social Precinct’.
Through a collaborative design approach, CKDS identified the following project objectives:
- to create a lively ‘student social precinct’ that enhances the University’s Future Masterplan
- to provide a clear and legible identity to the space through hard and soft landscaping.
- to establish clear pedestrian pathways through and within the site.
- to resolve clashes in the pedestrian and servicing areas.
