Central Park Public Domain

Turf design studio as Architects

Turf Design Studio with Jeppe Aagaard Andersen was commissioned by Frasers Property to reimagine the public domain of the Carlton United Brewery site at Broadway in Chippendale. Turf’s first task was to work with Foster + Partners, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Johnson Pilton Walker, Tonkin Zulaikha Greer and Tzannes Associates to review and refine the original masterplan inherited with the project.
Since opening, Central Park has become a much-loved new addition to city life.

From the everyday dog walk or yoga class, to markets and numerous annual major events, Central Park has been embraced by the community at all levels.
Central Park’s public domain exemplifies how a well-considered and legible public domain framework can both unite a site and restitch a city. At the heart of the site is Chippendale Green; a north-facing park of terraced, sun drenched lawns tucked away from the frenetic pace of the city.

Twelve years on TURF has played a formative role in the creation of an entirely new city precinct delivered via 12 major public domain and building projects including: Stages 1 & 2 Infrastructure Works, eight new streets, Chippendale Green, Park Lane, seven thru-site pedestrian links, One Central Park.

Now almost complete, the mix of 4200 residents and 1200 workers, supermarkets and cafes makes for a vibrant new urban village breathing new life into what was a baron and desolate ¬stretch of Broadway, while adding to the energy and vitality of inner-city Chippendale.
