PUBLIC SPACE WITH ENERGY
ASPECT Studios was commissioned by the City of Whitehorse to create an innovative space with a diverse array of recreation activities and events within the historic and well-loved park, Box Hill Gardens.
A key feature of the space is the recycling of the former tennis court club building. Part of the clubhouse was retained and reused as seating platforms overlooking the playing surfaces. A new toilet block sits behind the rebound-wall providing amenity to all park users.
The site functions as both community space and courts for multiple sport and recreation activities. The team designed a dynamic and engaging super graphic to define the play areas and create an iconic and playful destination for the growing community.
There is also a 1km long path for walking and running that travels around the gardens, with the start and finish lines syncing into the multi-purpose area.
