Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia
- Under Construction
The Mill is mixed use development on a heritage site in the city of Wagga Wagga in south-western NSW. KANNFINCH is responsible for the master planning, architecture and the interior design of this project, which is currently under construction. KANNFINCH’s design for the 23,000m2 site contains over 22,000m2 of gross floor area which is comprised of 84 apartments, commercial space, retail space, a supermarket, offices and conference facilities.
One of the key challenges was providing an innovative and contemporary design solution while respecting the site’s historic character. The site can be seen as three ‘precincts’, each having their own character but tied together by common languages of design, materials and scale.
Sustainability features include use of passive solar design principles, collection and re-use of water for irrigation, and use of recycled timber in screening and decking.
