This design concept was commissioned by the owners of an existing service centre on a corner site of 2 main arterial roads on the south eastern fringe of Melbourne. The brief was to redevelop part of the unused landscape buffer surrounding the site. This would comprise of a Fish n Chip shop / food store with take away and onsite eating facilities, and a Fruit & Vegetable market store with auxiliary parking and toilet complex.
The concept we developed for this project involved proposing iconic structures that created visual interest from the street whilst contributing to the commercialisation of the property. The programs were to be situated around a landscaped piazza which would become the pedestrian link to the existing onsite facilities, and would transform the proposal into a central event space attracting customers and users to this part of the site facilitating other activities both recreational and commercial to take place also.
