News from Hansen
Welcome to the latest News from Hansen. With so much happening in the world right now, we are pleased to say that the Hansen team are continuing to work on a variety of great projects and are keeping in contact with our clients. 
 
During March, Hansen transitioned to a remote workplace: we continue to be fully operational and staff have fine-tuned their new home offices, some of which are featured below. Direct phone numbers of all staff remain the same, so please don't hesitate to call, email or video conference.
 
Recently we submitted four entries into the AILA Landscape Architecture Awards 2020. These included the Croydon Town Square development, Hartleigh Estate (featured below), the Frankston Social Housing Investment Planning Feasibility Study, and the Knox Children and Family Centre in Bayswater was entered in the new Health and Education category.

Landscape Architecture - Hartleigh Estate
 
The Hansen Landscape Architecture Team recently completed Stage 5 of the 19 stage development at Hartleigh Estate in Clyde, for developer National Pacific Properties. 

Stage 5 included the development and design of the wetlands, reserve and playground. The reserve aims to provide high quality recreational space for families and individuals providing many passive and active recreational opportunities, including seating, viewing decks, lawn area, a playground and interactive artwork. 

A gigantic sculptural wheelbarrow, including a 360 degree accessible basket swing, adds visual interest and character to the vast reserve.

Urban Design - City of Yarra Built Form Reviews 
 
Hansen’s Urban Design Team has been busy completing Stage 1 of the Collingwood- Fitzroy Built Form Review for the City of Yarra. The Stage 1 Built Form Review seeks to guide future development for some of Melbourne's premier heritage streets and precincts, including Brunswick Street, Smith Street, Gertrude Street, Johnston Street (west), Fitzroy East and Fitzroy Town Hall precincts.

The Stage 1 Built Form Review was endorsed by Council in December 2019. It is now awaiting Minister for Planning approval for proposed interim built form controls (Design and Development Overlays).
Urban Design - Streets for People Update
 
Hansen’s Design Studio (Urban Design and Landscape Architecture) have demonstrated the benefits of a collaborative process in creating streets for people in urban and rural contexts. We have curated a creative approach to streetscape design, adding a sense of place and playfulness. Fundamental to our design process is a genuine appreciation of place formed from the perspectives of users and decision-makers. 
 
We have recently adopted this enjoyable working process in streetscape upgrade concept design for tourism-focused Healesville, in a transit-oriented shared street fronting Boronia Station and along Mason and Robinson Streets in Central Dandenong.

Urban Planning - VIC SES in Knoxfield
 
The Hansen Planning Team have secured a permit for the new Victorian State Emergency Service facility in Knox (VICSES Knox).

The brand new state-of-the-art facility to be delivered for the SES Knox Unit on Burwood Hwy will ensure their vital emergency services, including rescue within the community, can continue for years to come. 

The purpose built facility will house specialised resources to support regional and state-wide operations and their partners agencies.
Urban Planning - Nightingale Anstey

The Hansen Planning Team helped secure planning approval of Nightingale Anstey. Designed by Breathe Architecture, Nightingale Anstey is the latest addition to the Anstey Urban Village precinct. The planning team worked with Nightingale Housing and many key stakeholders to develop an approvals strategy that allowed an amendment of a previous permit and avoided VCAT.

We are looking forward to seeing the development of these well designed, well connected, accessible and robust apartments.
Climate Change Update
   
The built environment in which we work has a critical role to play in both mitigation and adaption to climate change – thoughtful and innovative planning and design are essential.

Hansen have recently been working with collaborators in architecture and sustainability practices to explore ways current precinct and place-based planning can deliver improved responses to climate change. ⁠

Some of the projects we think exemplify these improved responses include the Arden Climate Change Response Plan we assisted Hip vs Hype in preparing, and the precinct based approach to the delivery of higher density housing demonstrated by Nightingale Village. ⁠
