CADDENS CORNER SHOPPING CENTRE
The brief for this project to Nettleton Tribe was to create a centre to service the needs of a growing community within Caddens and its surrounding neighborhood. The design focuses on creating unique, dynamic spaces for a mix of retail and complimentary uses providing everyday convenience to support the expanding population. The site was previously a drive-in cinema and so the design of external area (ie. Floor pattern, furniture) evolved from “film reel” as a concept, reminiscent of waves or ribbons. In exploring this evolution of shape there was potential to have users interact with the furniture in interesting ways. As a result, it was great to see some children playing around the furniture as was intended and imagined people would do after opening. For more see our project feature article.
