In the second half of the twentieth century much of Woolloomooloo became social housing. Before then, back in the early nineteenth century it had many large houses, most with spectacular gardens as well as market gardens on the harbour shore.

Community profile: An inner city high density, diverse multi-cultural community from young professionals, families and elders.

Design resolution:

To incorporate a community garden as part of the upgrade, to honour the history of Woolloomooloo’s past as verdant garden cove and market — offering respite from the city bustle and noise, and a meeting place for locals and visitors to enjoy.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
