ABOUT THE PROJECT
Civic Green is an exemplar of inner city adaptive reuse and resource conservation. The project sees the transformation of an unused ‘pool hall’ into a mixed use development consisting of 32 apartments and ground floor commercial space. Utilisation of the existing ground and first floor structure reduced project cost, construction waste and embodied energy.
The use of colour, cascading planter boxes and street trees provide a sculptural massing that adds visual interest to the streetscape. The development demonstrates that inner city adaptive re-use projects can result in high quality outcomes with excellent amenity; whilst maximising development yield.
