TZG were asked to participate in the Feasibility Study for the Kur-ring-gai Civic Centre, focusing on the Gordon Council Chambers Site. In order to test the proposed Ku-ring-gai planning controls, the TZG proposal clustered a number of public uses as discrete buildings.
The focus is a large public space around which the buildings step down from the Pacific Highway.
At the lowest (west) end these open out into a new public park containing large remanent gum trees.
The use of each building is encoded by different environmental cladding types. The centre’s different events thus lead to the visual articulation of the buildings.
