A new residential neighborhood over a former dairy farm in Australia

The project, developed by David Chipperfield Architects, Assemble, and landscape architect Jane Irwin, will connect usually separate functions, working as one ecosystem.

David Chipperfield Architects, Assemble, and the Australian landscape architect Jane Irwin will create a residential neighborhood on a former dairy farm in Canberra, Australia's Capital, named “Dairy Road”. The master plan comprehends a 14-hectare site in the industrial suburb of Fyshwick and Jerrabomberra Wetlands.

“The future vision for Dairy Road is an interconnected neighborhood where many often-separated parts work together as one ecosystem,” said property developer Molonglo.

David Chipperfield Architects designed thirteen residential structures organized around a public square and wetland ecosystem restored by Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture, to better mirror the site’s pre-colonial state. These new buildings, of three and four plans, will house up to 700 residents.

Assemble will add ten warehouse-style buildings that will be used to house community centers, manufacturing, sports spaces, and work studios. The first new additions are scheduled to be completed in 2024.
