Westfield Kotara is one of two major shopping centres to serve metropolitan Newcastle. Located six kilometres south-west of Newcastle’s CBD, the centre caters to a trade area population of approximately 382,000 residents and offers 260 retailers across a broad range.
GroupGSA assisted the Scentre Group design team in developing a design for a stimulating and interactive landscaped rooftop for a new food court. The outdoor space offers shelter, a playground, sensory planting, an informal performance space and raised planter beds, integrated with seating for the public adjacent a number of specialty restaurants. Hanging planters and pots create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and provide a new outdoor space for patrons.
