Cockburn Central West

i

CODA’s involvement in the Cockburn Central West project was to develop a comprehensive 3D site model for LandCorp, to test and define the potential built form and road layouts administered by the Design Guidelines (prepared by Taylor Burrell Barnett). The 3D mass model was an important tool in communicating to the authorities (City of Cockburn and Office of the Government Architect) the ways in which we had addressed the finer nuances of the site, especially within steeper areas of the development.

Using the model we were able to analyse overshadowing, street interfaces with ground floor setbacks, bulk and scale, the relationship with public open space and the new Fremantle Dockers training facility. Throughout the process, we provided direction to the development of the public realm and built form in accordance with the criteria established by the design guidelines. The urban realm and road modelling also provided detailed guidance to engineers in developing the final road design.

Key objectives of the project were to maximise opportunities for views from the apartment towers to the open space; and to develop built form that would mitigate the negative effects of nearby busy roads and the overhead, high voltage powerlines immediately west of the site.
