Perth’s Expansion Plans

Little ole’ Perth is set to expand even FURTHER North, to Shoalhaven, 9 clicks North of Mindarie. I’m sure this is now pretty much approaching where we used to go for holidays. The development is supposed to be part of the big Alkimos project and will eventually house 50 000 people. Zuidveld Marchant Hur and Sharnie How Architects are providing architectural services to developers Peet Ltd, with urban designers Taylor Burrell Barnet.

Apparently they are having a little trouble trying to “create a sense of place” as it is all sand dunes and bareness, although they are trying to increase the density to “deal with urban sprawl”. Uh-huh.

Anyway, some pics from Architecture and Design:
