Walking and cycling track bring the beach closer to the people. Rejuvenating the south coast of Newcastle, The Bathers Bay aims on increasing attraction via kiosks throughout the walk whilst the path surrounds the new skatepark. Increase the accessibility to the Newcastle beaches, the 4 to metre wide shared path will allow for all ages and abilities to use and enjoy the views.
The new Central Acute Services Building (CASB), which is the centrepiece of the Westmead Redevelopment, is the first hospital in NSW to provide comprehensive health services for children and adults. It will be a joint facility with The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Western Sydney Local Health District, and the University of Sydney when it opens in early 2021, providing high-quality healthcare.
The intent of this project was to interlace and weave the old and new in a seamless fashion, as the new expansion of the facilities heavily juxtaposes with the existing structures. This transition between the old chapel and the new tall white buildings also allowed for room for a custom – built tailored approach.
