Hastings Street Streetscape

Hastings Street Streetscape

Architectus was invited by Noosa Shire Council and the Hastings Street Association to participate in a "makeover" of Hastings Street to upgrade its facilities yet retain its character.

The commission involved extensive community consultation, analysis of data and the formulation of a comprehensive design brief, as well as the streetscape design for Hastings Street.

The design emphasises:

  • A more pedestrian focused environment through improved traffic management and an increase in pedestrian priority areas.
  • Reinforced links and public access to the beach.
  • Retaining existing trees to maintain the shade canopy on the street and creating more shade where there are gaps in the existing canopy.
  • Creating nodes of artwork/seating/gathering areas to accentuate beach links.
  • Reflecting the Noosa ‘sense of place' in the design - casual, beachy, subtropical, relating to natural elements in the landscape.
  • Creating a series of differentiated, intimate and informal spaces.
