The Green Square Architecture Affair …

Green Square, a complex intersection in Alexandria, a neighbourhood packed with design practices, furniture showrooms, Australia’s #1 business park, a heap of creative go-getters, and the home of KE-ZU looks set to become home to a bustling epicentre of culture for the ever growing area just south of central Sydney – said to be Australia’s largest urban development at this time.

A competition was run recently, reaching far and wide internationally for architecture submissions for the design of a public library and plaza.  The winning competition announced and the winning entrant were Sydney locals Felicity Stewart and Matthias Hollenstein in association with Colin Stewart Architects.

From over 160 entries, Stewart and Hollenstein’s proposal was chosen, the exciting design incorporates a subterranean library, exposed internal garden, a public “jam” room for budding musicians and technology rooms.

Their proposal, which creates public space focussing on green areas touted itself as “a business centre, also an entertainment venue, a new innovative library creating an urban living room, and an outdoor plaza becomes a meeting place where friends can shop, dine and play”.

Now doesn’t that sound great for our developing community!  Glenn Murcott AO, Architect and competition juror says of the space:

A local winner, this is not only a superb solution, it’s going to be a wonderful scheme and a wonderful place to be for the people of Green Square.

Sounds a treat.
