Here Studio is working with Urban Abstract to strategically plan the development of a property in Ballarat East to incorporate affordable accommodation, retail, community and mixed-use facilities. We have conducted a preliminary feasibility study specifically referencing the 2008 Ballarat Residential Infill Opportunities Study and see the need to introduce more medium density infill development to offset the population growth of Ballarat.

A primary concern of the development is to maintain many of the features of the existing property through a restorative approach. We aim to work with Urban Abstract to propose a sustainable design that will benefit the local community.
