The overall site can be understood as a campus of buildings set around key public spaces, well suited to the scale of pedestrians. The sequence of civic spaces offer dynamic public environments for the surrounding neighbourhood. The variety of spaces accommodates seasonal changes in weather and creates comfortable microclimates (sun traps, wind protected) to occupy.
The GovHub will be a lively precinct that bridges the gap between community spaces and government activity, and will further bolster the future growth of the Armstrong Street retail precinct. An active ground plane will enhance public connectivity and retail opportunities.
