Ellenbrook Management Pty Ltd commenced a planning review of the northern expansion of the Town Centre, As part of this exercise, we were commissioned by LWP to produce the Town Centre Style Manual, which defines the vision and theming for the town centre, and establishes the guidelines and materials for the public realm, as well as the style and theming for the built form.
Plan E has been involved in Ellenbrook since 2000, working initially on the Charlottes Vineyard Village, and has subsequently been involved in numerous residential villages, as well as the Ellenbrook District Centre and the Ellenbrook Town Centre. Three significant projects completed to date in the town centre are the Town Square Park, Main Street Plaza and the Ellenbrook Water Play facility, important projects in fostering community development.
In 2011 Ellenbrook Management Pty Ltd commenced a planning review of the northern expansion of the Town Centre, in which PLAN E participated as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
The focus was to create a more legible town centre with a strong civic core, a strong sense of place, and a diverse range of public spaces linked by high quality streetscape and laneways. The design references the Ellen Stirling story with the public realm and built form inspired by historical references, styles and materials from her rich early colonial heritage in a contemporary interpretation, with brick to be a signature element. The Town Centre contains elements of surprise and discovery to reflect the spirit of Ellen Stirling not only in the layout, but also in the treatment of spaces and buildings.
