REALMstudios were privileged to be shortlisted for the K2K Urban Design Competition in Sydney as part of the CODA Architecture + Urban Design team.
Four teams were shortlisted: CODA, JMD, Aspect and JBA to respond with a vision for the future of Kensington and Kingsford Town Centres in Randwick. Sydney is experiencing significant change and the City of Randwick is too. The new light rail together with forecast growth in housing and jobs means that Council and the community need to take control of shaping the future.
Our complex and integrated proposal took a full appreciation of the zone influenced by future light rail. This ‘broadened’ area echoed the “Broad Street” as Anzac Parade was once known. A more democratic distribution of density was allocated across the pedestrian zone impacted by the LRT. This involved a more modulated and controlled built form that supported a unique urban grain and high quality public realm.
