2018 Australian Urban Design Awards: Commendation for Built Projects – Local and Neighbourhood Scale

Railway Square by Place Laboratory

Jury citation:

This space builds on one hundred years of industrial and railway history to make a big statement at a small scale, acting as a centrepiece and consolidating factor for a long-term urban renewal project in the Perth suburb of Midland. By carefully considering multiple points of access, promoting a variety of uses and basing the design on the industrial heritage of the railway yards, the designers have created an active precinct that will form an important part of the community fabric over the next hundred years.

Location: Midland (WA)
