Glenfield Domain- Downing Street- Auckland

Public Reserve Design

Located across from the Glenfield shopping mall and skate land/recreation centre, the site extends from the Tavern along Downing Street. The proposals included significant earthworks, stonewalls, pathways a watercourse, seating and activity areas. Features included design elements either side of Downing Street and pedestrian links between open space, retail and recreational facilities. The steep site was recontoured for accessible gradients to outlooks, to create amphitheatre space and useable open space. The Domain is a predominantly passive public space integrating improvements with expansion of the retail centre.
