Emerald City Green Square

Emerald City is the name of the proposed mixed-use development at 296 – 298 Botany Road & 284 Wyndham Street in Alexandria. In collaboration with Andrew Burns Architecture, our entry was presented to the City of Sydney as part of a competitive design process for the site next to Green Square town centre.

The proposal comprises of a series of slender tower-forms arising from a topographic landscape layer. The predetermined podium design by SJB has informed this landscape cloak and works as a mediator between the two design proposals in both form and function. The integration of communal facilities, car and bicycles parking, private open spaces and commercial tenancies into the landscape layers contributes to amenity while further reinforcing the concept.

Emphasis lies within the pragmatic apartment planning in the towers above and the shift in volumes result in a dynamic silhouette. This is our idea of formalizing the future of Green Square.
