K2K Urban Design Competition
Overview

State: NSW
Client: Randwick City Council
Competition: EOI and single stage design competition
Winner: JMD with Hill Thalis Architecture and Urban Projects


Sydney is experiencing significant change and the City of Randwick is too. The new light rail together with forecast growth in housing and jobs means that Council and the community need to take control of shaping our future. Kensington and Kingsford are important precincts and Council invites the urban design and architecture community to develop a plan for Kensington and Kingsford that will deliver great places to live, work and visit.

The competition was run in two stages – an Expression of Interest stage, where design teams put forward why they should be considered as finalists; and a Competition stage, where the shortlisted finalists created designs and ideas for Kensington and Kingsford. This was followed by a single stage design competition. The winner was JMD with Hill Thalis Architecture and Urban Projects.
