CURRENT FINAL YEAR
LOCATION: Cottage Creek, Newcastle
Cottage Creek Precinct located in West Newcastle is characterised by its dramatic topography, history, industrial and scenery. The potential of the site has not been fully used as it is currently abundant. As the site lies between Newcastle harbour and yacht community, Cottage Creek Precinct has the opportunity to become a central meeting point for various users in these parts of the city.
The scheme attempts to reconnect the site to its identity as a historical harbour, through introducing waterfront revitalization and city connection that creates an interface between city and river. Inserting a Museum on the western city edge will act as a new monument for Newcastle urban renewal and its place as a cultural capital.
