Common Ground

Common Ground aims to create a new housing typology through the opportunistic development of median strips. Two different street types – one with carparking, and the other with a nature strip – have been used as case studies for the project. By activating the dormant and underutilized streetscapes within North Melbourne, this project capitalizes on the opportunity to increase density within the suburb without expanding or removing areas of the existing urban fabric.

The main objective of the Common Ground is to respond to the social isolation caused by the typical Melbourne superblock, through the integration of social and affordable housing at a scale more appropriate to the Australian context.
