21st century urban framework

Located between Melbourne and the Dandenong Ranges, a beautiful mountainous region that inspired a rich architectural vocabulary of local forms, the design echoes the natural environment in the timber and lodge buildings, the palette of materials and patterns that recall the regional vineyards, and in the broad verandahs and lawns of the town square.

Knox City is part of a long-range master plan to create an urban framework for a 21st-century neighborhood on the outskirts of Melbourne. Patterned after the city plan for Savannah, Georgia, the project includes 1,450,000 square feet of retail, office, civic, and residential buildings that reshape a regional retail center into a robust community that is connected to the area’s culture and history. The center offers a variety of leisure options in a comfortable setting that reflects the diversity of the native land.

The project’s architectural design and planning reinforces the contemporary Australian lifestyle. The large-scale complex is divided into six separate precincts that have unique names and visual expressions that are related to their merchandising. Clear wayfinding systems facilitate movement through the indoor and outdoor areas of the precincts.
