The brief was to develop the existing Madden Street and Pakenham Street West in a simple, high quality and functional fashion, which in turn would support future development and street life in Wynyard Quarter.
Madden Street establishes a new east-west ‘working waterfront street’ connection linking Westhaven (west) to the Viaduct Basin (east) which opens up the site to the water. These edges will be re-enforced by future waters edge interventions and public access. Pakenham Street establishes a new focal point for the central Precinct and new ‘internal spaces’ which contrast with the precinct's harbour edges.
