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.

"… the result is impressive … (the) strategy offers a model which may be widely applied in existing public spaces which lack coherence and comfort outside of the buildings themselves."

The end result was an award-winning master plan that specifically recommended siting new buildings, consolidating car parking, unifying pedestrian networks and establishing a coherent flow of outdoor spaces. Knitted together, this disparate and car-reliant campus transformed into an intelligible whole – one that staff, students, and the broader community are proud to be a part of.
