2019 Australian Urban Design Awards: Winner of Built Projects – Local and Neighbourhood Scale

Flour Mill of Summer Hill by Hassell

Jury citation

The jury acknowledges the design team’s outstanding achievement in meeting the challenges posed by this project. The team has transformed a former industrial site into a new urban residential community and successfully integrated it with the historic context of Sydney’s inner west.

The iconic flour mill silos and landmark heritage buildings of Summer Hill have been retained, adapted and extended with new buildings to create more than 300 residences. The mixed-use development has revitalized this 2.5-hectare brownfield site. The consolidated precinct now includes cafes, retail and studios and reconnects this area to the adjoining neighbourhoods. Well-served by public transport, the site also enjoys abundant public open space. Appropriate landscape features and materials respect the flood-prone site.

Location: Summer Hill (NSW)
