Block H — Wentworth Point

Wentworth Point

fjcurban have developed an approach for Block H, Wentworth Point that inverts the traditional urban model. The built form is placed under, and carefully within, an enlarged public park. The approach employs the framing of the completed streets and blocks of Wentworth Point to create a negative space. A space that is not limited and private, but expansive and public.
Wentworth Point is a successful model for density connected to the wide open spaces of Sydney Olympic Park and, increasingly, connected to transport. It is embraced by a diversity of households including families.

The design gives Wentworth Point its heart, place of public focus and enjoyment. The conceptual approach supports community and health and wellbeing. It maximises the public offering and the opportunity for community engagement. Experiencing art, landscape, worship, gathering, fitness and relaxation will be part of the daily flow for the local Wentworth Point community and visitors.

The rich network of high quality, vibrant and sunny spaces will support active life styles and encourage the social interaction, vital for mental health and physical wellbeing. Sustainability and resilience are central to the proposal. The large green surfaces will maximise water capture and re-use, minimise heat island effects and place new residential uses in optimum conditions for natural light and ventilation.
