Beaufort Street Grocery
Located on the busy main street of Beaufort Street in Inglewood, the proposed retail development aims to reinvent the currently dilapidated site and create a new boutique retail experience within Inglewood. The development’s design ethos is paying homage to the Inter-war heritage precinct buildings in the Inglewood area, whilst still creating an inviting and useable space throughout the site.
Activating the Beaufort Street facade is key in creating a vibrant and successful business. Not wanting to limit the type of tenancies that will lease the space, we have created a recessed alfresco area to the front of the building that can be used by all tenancies should the need require it. However we have been careful to ensure that traffic noise & impact on this area is minimised by creating acoustic barriers and landscaping along the front, doubling at balustrading.
As a whole the development will thoroughly rejuvenate a highly visible site that the City is keen to upgrade. The development provides a landmark design at the gateway to Inglewood, transforming what is currently an underutilised and unattractive location into a unique Inglewood focal point for its setting.
