CK Architecture collaborated closely with Richie Allan from TOAC on the Scollay Street Flexihub project, infusing the essence of Country into the design.
The design narrative of ‘Murra Ngadyung – Pathway to Water’ draws inspiration directly from Country – Richie described the landscape native to the site as natural wetlands; made up of grasses and reeds forming sandy embankments, and flowing waterways that ebb and flow with the seasons. Richie shared the importance of water and its role in sustaining the ecosystems that are dependent on it – “out on Country the pathway to water is the core to a healthy lifestyle, a source of growth and prosperity”. The design was thoughtfully crafted to celebrate the wetlands and waterways that once defined the area.
Custom contour mapped graphics and carefully sourced materials were integrated harmoniously into the design not only adding aesthetic appeal but also serving as a tribute to the land’s unique topography. Each curve and contour echoed the natural flow of the water, creating a visual narrative that honoured the past while connecting it to the present.
