Christies Beach is fast becoming a sought after seaside destination and this project was identified as critical to the reinvigoration of this prominent location.  The foreshore area acts as a node to connect the urban fabric to the beach.  To improve pedestrian access and activate the edge, the road width along Beach Road was reduced and the adjacent Rotary Park upgraded.  The foreshore and beach plaza area was given a facelift with contemporary paving and custom shelters. A large viewing deck, public art and feature lighting contribute to creating an attractive and active public space.

The Christies Beach to Port Noarlunga Foreshore Revitalisation was awarded the ‘Plan to Place’ Award at the Planning Industry Australia (PIA) SA 2012 Awards.  Two of the four sites in the award were designed by Outerspace, Beach Road and Rotary Park, Christies Beach and Lot 6, Port Noarlunga.
