Following the success of the Day Street Shops project Penrith City Council engaged Sprout to develop a concept design, detailed design and construction documentation and work with the contractor Coordinated Landscapes to deliver this small public domain upgrade.
The project, Sydney Street Shops forms part of the Neighbourhood Renewal Program which seeks to enhance the livability of local neighbourhoods within the LGA.
Sprout established a suite of simple yet engaging design interventions to improve the amenity of the shops and in part establish a unique identity appealing to local residents and passing traffic.
Central to the project was an extensive consultation process led by JOC Consulting. Sprout led the design response which heavily relied upon multifunctional, adaptable furniture elements, designed to be manufactured locally, coupled with tree planting to provide a cooler, engaging and functional public domain.
