Emerge Associates have been engaged by the Town of Kwinana to undertake the detail design and documentation of the Kwinana Town Centre encompassing the development of a new Civic Plaza and associated streetscapes. The project involves the revitalisation of the existing Main Street that will connect the new Town Square to adjacent iconic buildings. The public realm is to be a place for informal and formal social interactions and providing the opportunity for people to walk, relax, dine and shop.
The focal point of the Town Centre revitalisation will be the implementation of a main Town Square Civic Plaza which is to make provision for the operation of day markets on weekends in a hardscaped, tree lined plaza.
An adjacent stage and terraced amphitheatre will promote community events as a focal point in an attractive landscape setting that encourages informal passive recreation. The identity of the Kwinana Town Centre is to capture the local distinctiveness of Kwinana including its strong connection to nature and the environment and is enhanced through imaginative, pleasurable and quality built form. The shared vibrant and quality public realm helps build the community identity and fosters a sense of civic pride.
