THE NORTHBOURNE PROJECT DESIGN COMPETITION

Location

Northbourne Ave and Condamine Street, Canberra ACT

Client

ACT Government

Description

competition for the Northbourne Flats public housing site located at the northern entry to Canberra.

The design brief was for up to 1,000 apartments to increase city densities, to enhance the Braddon/ Turner neighbourhoods, to be environmentally sustainable, to respect built and landscape heritage values, and to “salt and pepper” social and private housing.

LFA’s entry represented a new urban outcome   which had respect for the past but provided densification with 21st century sustainable architecture and urbanism to create a multi-facetted, lively new quarter for Canberra and an appropriate entry to the Nation’s Capital.
