Sun’s out so what better way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather than with a coffee from @parcocarlton (bonus points for proximity to Argyle Square). . A former 1900s power substation located on a traffic island, Hansen’s planning dream team were pleased to support Parco through the planning approval process with the City of Melbourne. . The site presented some unique planning challenges with title boundaries, heritage overlays, traffic and waste management but we were pleased to help get these guys over the line. . Solid reviews in @broadsheet_melb and we see @9postcards paid a visit recently too. . Coffee’s up! . . . #planning #urbanplanning #townplanning #melbournecoffee #melbournecoffeeculture #cafe #melbournecafe

Hansen Partnership is proud of our ongoing strategic planning and urban design work in regional townships and centres. . Engaged by the Shire of Strathbogie to develop the Euroa Township Strategy - the long term vision and action plan for the town over the next ten years - Hansen Planning Associate Richard Stevenson and Urban Design Associate Alastair Campbell recently visited Euroa to consult members of the local community on their vision for the town. . Produced in consultation with Martyn Group and Tim Nott Economics, Hansen’s initial report examines the opportunities for residential and commercial development, improvements to pedestrian connectivity, better linkages to public transport, traffic flow, wayfinding, lighting, additional street planting and shop front restoration as well as the potential benefits to be realised through the delivery of the Inland Rail Freight project. . The report also includes a number of town centre concepts designed to prompt and generate community discussion. Be sure to check out our stories for some photographic gems from Alastair's site inspection. There are some architecture gems in there. . . . #euroa #strathbogieranges #communityconsultation #strategicplanning #urbandesign #regionalplanning

Congratulations to Joel Schmetzer who has been promoted to Senior Planner at Hansen.⠀ ⠀ Joel originally joined Hansen Partnership as a student planner while completing a Masters of Urban Planning and Environment at RMIT. ⠀ ⠀ Joel works across a range of both statutory and strategic planning projects at Hansen and his exceptional ability to interpret policy and communicate detailed arguments has been a vital asset to achieving successful outcomes across a range of commercial, industrial and residential planning applications and VCAT appeals in both urban and rural contexts.⠀ ⠀ (Joel also wrangles the Hansen Social Club in cahoots with Emily Harrod and lifts the Hansen sock game to a whole new level).⠀ ⠀ Well done Joel!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #hansenpeople #urbanplanning #planning #townplanning #strategicplanning #beardsofinstagram

Congratulations to @northerngrampiansshire on their recent adoption of the Halls Gap Action Plan, prepared by Hansen. . Council sought to take a strategic approach to 'get things moving' in this spectacular settlement - particularly in light of the ongoing development of the Grampians Peaks Trail. . Hansen assisted Council in developing a framework and identifying priority projects emphasising the 'walkability' of the Village Centre and celebrating its enviable landscape setting. . Our role included community consultation with Hansen’s project team Craig Czarny, Director Urban Design and Jane Keddie, Associate Planning testing priority projects with the community. The enthusiastic input of locals and the Council made all the difference to this plan. . We're even more excited to be part of the next stage of works, which includes the roll out of streetscape works across the Village Centre. . . .

SITE VISIT to the Charles and Mollison Pocket Park in Abbotsford.⠀ ⠀ Hansen Director of Landscape Architecture Steve Schutt and Landscape Architecture Associate Castiel Shepp were on site recently checking progress ahead of the park's opening.⠀ ⠀ Swipe for more design details including herringbone recycled brick paving and laser cut corten planters which will be backlit to look pretty special come night time.⠀ ⠀ It's all shaping up very nicely......⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #hansendesigned #hansenoutandabout #landscapearchitecture #parks #pocketpark #urbandesign #melbourne #abbotsford

We're revisiting our work on Williams Reserve, East Richmond in the lead up to the AILA Victoria Awards tonight (and let’s be honest, drone footage never gets old does it?) ⠀ Locals love this park! In fact, they see it as an extension of their own backyard and in an increasingly urbanised environment with a growing population, Williams Reserve needed an upgrade.⠀ ⠀ That's where Hansen stepped in. Through community consultation, we learned locals particularly valued the reserve's large lawns and mature trees but wanted improved picnic and playground facilities.⠀ ⠀ With careful consideration, Hansen were able to deliver on these design aspirations and more including a new permeable, curvilinear fence to replace the existing closed boundary fence to create a welcoming space for visitors, a new plant palette to complement existing mature trees, new seating and integration with the new ground floor community space located at 520 Victoria Street on the eastern boundary of the reserve.⠀ ⠀ Client: @cityofyarra ⠀ Project team: @irwinconsult_au Architecture & Access Simpson Construction⠀ 📷 @lloydphoto ⠀ Best of luck to the Hansen Landscape Architecture team tonight 🍀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #hansendesigned #landscapearchitecture #urbandesign #parks #reserves #playgrounds #richmond #aila #ailavic #ailavictoria

It's AILA Victoria Awards week and we're highlighting some of our award submissions.....fingers crossed for Friday!⠀ ⠀ Chapel Street has long been one of Melbourne’s destination streets. The uniqueness of the street lies in its diversity and vibrancy and with thoughtful and well resolved strategic planning and public realm improvements, Chapel Street can remain a world class destination for shopping and dining.⠀ ⠀ The site for the Windsor Village Streetscape Improvements, along Chapel Street between James and Duke Streets, was ideally suited for redevelopment as a ‘pause point’ with its wider than average footpaths, a tram stop and signalised pedestrian crossing. ⠀ ⠀ Part of Hansen’s design solution for these pause points incorporated bespoke furniture developed in collaboration with nationally recognised design and fabrication practice BiGfiSh Workshop.⠀ ⠀ Designed in eye-catching colours and patterns, these benches provide a unifying design element within a diverse streetscape, inviting locals and visitors to spend more time in the area by providing a welcoming place to sit, rest, eat and socialise.⠀ ⠀ Client: @stonnington_city ⠀ Project team: @bigfishfootscray and @irwinconsult_au ⠀ 📷 @lloydphoto . . .⠀ ⠀ #hansendesigned #landscapearchitecture #urbandesign #pedestrianoriented #windsor #aila #ailavic #ailavictoria

The AILA Victoria Landscape Architecture Awards are this Friday and we're quite excited!⠀ ⠀ We've entered a number of our favourite projects and fingers crossed we're in the mix.⠀ ⠀ We're particularly proud of our work for Gannawarra Shire on Victoria Square in Kerang, a regional town in the north west of Victoria.⠀ ⠀ This project was all about transforming the township’s main street into a pedestrian space and was underpinned by an awareness and sensitivity to 'localness’, with the goal of re-imagining the centre of this thriving regional town as a place of civic pride and community gathering. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ 📷 @lloydphoto . . . #hansendesigned #landscapearchitecture #urbandesign #pedestrianoriented #regionalvictoria #aila #ailavic #ailavictoria #kerang
