Rockingham Foreshore Redevelopment
Following the completion of the Rockingham Foreshore Master Plan (2015) Place Laboratory has been commissioned to develop the detailed design for three key public realm spaces on the Rockingham foreshore.

A new high-performance public square, together with the redevelopment of the foreshore boardwalk and historic Railway Terrace creates a new civic heart and tourism destination for Rockingham. The design team worked extensively with the community to understand the natural and cultural character of the Beach Plaza. The community’s involvement guided the development of a place activation plan and design narrative to enhance and extend the unique characteristics inherent to the site. The design seeks to connect the city to the sea and create a place of celebration with a relaxed character that is young at heart.
