Navigating conflicting interests and a predominantly residential landscape, Jackson Teece collaborated with the UNSW to expand and redefine its Kensington campus.
Following an extensive consultation process with both internal and external stakeholders, Jackson Teece devised a number of strategies to unite the campus, inject life into micro-environments, enable greater development and foster an interactive relationship with local residents.
This exhaustive remedial strategy enhanced the teaching, research, learning, living and recreational environments to overcome the deficiencies of earlier, ad-hoc growth. By removing surface car parking and consolidating existing facilities, enough land was released to achieve 50 percent more floor space on the site and 30 percent more usable open space. This was all we needed to establish the interconnected site that UNSW had envisioned.
