This project aims to both reinvigorate and consolidate part of Cabramatta Town Centre, a suburb located approximately 30km south-west of Sydney’s CBD, and home to a vibrant Vietnamese community.

The 1,750m2 development responds to two key issues of contemporary life in Western Sydney; transport and the cost of living. With two incomes becoming a requisite, the proposals incorporate a new Childcare facility as a key tenant within the new development. This is supplemented with high-quality food / retail spaces at ground floor, office space above, and a surplus of basement car-parking, to become a valued destination within the town centre,

This is further enhanced through the creation of a generous, new pedestrian thoroughfare that cuts across the site, referencing the established ‘arcades’ within the town centre and reconnecting the surrounding streets. This new ‘interior’ deliberately contrasts a restrained exterior, being lined with vibrant cladding that incorporates a bespoke pattern that references community, childhood and consumerism, to create a distinct new ‘place’ within the town centre.
