Doonside, NSW

In an initiative to provide high-quality residential design to Western Sydney, UrbanGrowth NSW committed to delivering more than 700 dwellings at an estate located on the site of the former historic Bungarribee House and adjoining Sydney’s largest urban park, the 29 kilometres of Western Sydney Parklands.

Sensitive urban design and water management are significant elements of the development, which aims to integrate with the existing community through physical and social links.

CLOUSTON’s work covered the design development, documentation and contract administration for the open space network, including the preparation of public domain, wayfinding, heritage impact and signage strategies and development of streetscapes and parklands.

Highlights include:

Precinct 1 Streetscapes – CLOUSTON’s design for these set a benchmark for the rest of the site’s development in terms of construction. Key to the project was creating multiple rain gardens or ‘Eco-medians’ within the local streets.

Community Resource Hub – CLOUSTON provided the conceptual design for this new facility, which is integrated into the adjacent heritage park and connected with pedestrian and cycle links. The design incorporates arrival and plaza spaces, accessible footpaths, feature planting, car parking and a community garden for locals.

Heritage Park – CLOUSTON’s work for this centrepiece of the parklands, built around the site of Bungarribee House, can be seen in our Heritage Portfolio.
