Liquid Blu was engaged by the City of Gold Coast to create a new destination for the local community and visitors. The brief was to establish a vibrant, multi-use hub that merged the natural environment with contemporary recreational facilities.

As the site is a much-loved area for locals, it was essential that we celebrated its history, community connections and geography. We’ve incorporated a pedestrian link that loops through the site, linking all facilities including parking and drop-off zones.

We worked with the site’s existing steep slopes and natural watercourse to form unique features such as a terraced seating area on a hillside. Shaded green spaces encourage nature-based play and community gatherings.
