Crown St Mall, Wollongong

"This is one of a series of integrated projects aimed at creating a centre in Wollongong that ‘supports an active city life’. At the historic heart of the city, it links the railway station with the ocean, in a gentle sweep of space that had suffered as a cluttered and dysfunctional 1980s ‘mall’. The Crown St Mall renewal demonstrated how absence and restraint give more, and how the removal of existing elements can facilitate new urban functions alongside everyday city life." - 2015 NSW Architecture Awards Booklet
