Easy Street Commercial is the newest installment of Habitat, a staged mixed-use development located in the heart of the thriving Arts and Industry Estate of Byron Bay. Building upon the success of previous stages, this latest precinct offers an extension of the existing commercial hub and becomes an important axial connection to the residential zone on the outskirts of the site.
The buildings are purposefully dispersed to provide landscaped ‘in-between’ spaces for casual meetings and vertical circulation, and rooted in the local industrial and agricultural vernacular. Passive properties of good sub-tropical design underpin sophisticated active environmental systems, with flexible outdoor zones creating key nodes throughout the planning of the site.
The new precinct delivers an active public domain with amenity, landscaping, parking with maximum permeability to its surrounding context, and provides a highly necessary public anchor to the diverse demographic living and working within Arts and Industry Estate.
