The Blue Mountains Council approached Breakspear Architects to undertake massing studies of Springwood Town Centre. This bigger picture thinking and modeling focused on the effect of proposed planning controls on the town’s fabric. As part of this project, the Council brief included case study sites, where Breakspear Architects strategised ways of shaping building envelopes to maximise solar access and amenity for the community.
