Harmony Park

Urban Design

City of Sydney
Sydney, NSW

Harmony Park provides relief from the dense urban environment of Surry Hills and an informal space for the social interaction of local residents and workers. Despite the seemingly simple design, the project integrates a number of complex demands, including a large number of easements, site contamination, existing mature tree cover and archaeological relics. Additionally, sustainable water management is achieved with a large below-ground water storage tank that collects site run-off and roof water from the adjoining substation building for use in park irrigation.
