Sydney, NSW, Australia
This Interim Activation Area has been created for community and commuters to enjoy while at Tallawong Station - part of the new Sydney Metro.
The Tallawong Interim Activation Area (IAA) provides a functional space for the community, train commuters, and residents nearby. Designed for flexibility, the space uses large seating pots, picnic settings and benches for people to use and take a break under the shade of the trees or shelters while they wait for the metro, meet up with a friend, or have a bite to eat. Designed to complement the metro station forecourt, it is now a place where families with children can come to play, or the where the community can simply come to sit and relax.
Place Design Group was engaged by Landcom to design an IAA that would engage the community visiting Tallawong Station. A place to stop and relax whilst they wait for the more permanent spaces to be constructed.
In designing this space, Place Design Group created a place for people which increases the diversity of the functions surrounding Tallawong Metro Station.
