Client: City of Rockingham
Location: Rockingham, WA
Dates: 2015 – ongoing
Collaborators: City of Rockingham + Tangelo Creative + DVC Consultants + MP Rogers & Associates + community and stakeholders of Rockingham, incl. Aboriginal community representatives
At the beginning of 2015, UDLA were engaged by the City of Rockingham to provide a master plan for the iconic Rockingham Beach Foreshore. This project provided an opening to explore significant revitalisation and tourism opportunities along the waterfront. The master plan design process included two design workshops with a community reference group, a meeting with the City of Rockingham Reconciliation Action Plan Reference Group, a presentation to Councillors and an open public information session.
Through an engaged design process, the Rockingham Beach Foreshore Master Plan sought to capture and promote Rockingham’s uniqueness, its history and character through design and to celebrate this iconic space as one of Western Australia’s favourite holiday destinations.
- A response which enhances the existing assets of the Rockingham Beach Foreshore by improving and building upon the landscape amenity of the space;
- A poetic and respectful response which recognises the natural environs as well as the European and Nyungar heritage of the Rockingham Beach Foreshore; and
- A contented community due to a successful engagement process.
