Frankston Foreshore spear headed Frankston’s reorientation to the Bay after many years of neglect. The feature bridge is now Frankston’s local landmark.
Most coastal developments segregate activity in hierarchy of use, parallel to the beach. The key design intent of the precinct was to break this hierarchy, realigning the space perpendicular to the beach; overlapping park and beach. This was achieved through a robust underlying structure, occupied by various activities, surface areas, art works and vegetation types.
The precinct was structured in four main areas:
Frankston City Council
Sketch design, concept master plan and contract documentation
Frankston Foreshore, Frankston, VIC, Australia
ASPECT Studios, Grogan Richards (structural engineering), Peninsula Civic Design (civil), Light Space (lighting), Kerry Old field (art), PL Consultants (water features)
