BVN Donavan Hill
GML was commissioned by BVN Donovan Hill to provide heritage advice for the Centennial Park and Moore Park Masterplan. GML worked with the masterplanning team to respond to and develop specific design options, with consideration of the setting and views to and from heritage items, adaptive re-use options and interpretative potential. Our heritage advice ensured that the assessed heritage values of the parklands were recognised, conserved and presented as part of the Masterplan.
A key objective of this project was to deliver on the NSW Government objectives, as reflected in the State Plan 2021. The strategic vision of the Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust was to plan for the future and ensure the outstanding heritage values of the parklands were conserved, whilst opportunities to increase public and commercial enterprise were enabled. GML Heritage input into the Masterplan allowed for new and engaging opportunities that maximised the benefits and value of this outstanding cultural landscape, while ensuring that the Centennial Parklands continued to provide much needed open space for recreation, sanctuary and respite in the heart of Sydney.
