Understanding: Built Form

about 5 years ago

KEY FACT - Variety in the scale and massing of the built form can if implemented appropriately provide a richer public domain experience.

The built form and aesthetics of a town centre is rooted in its urban structure, quality of architecture and the nuances of building height, style, texture and colour. Successful town centres ensure that the built form offers a sense of arrival and enclosure to a collective entity or place. Good built form also forms a physical extension to the public domain. Key points to consider when evaluating and strategising ‘Built Form and Aesthetics’ are as follows:
– Building Heights
– Gateway Entrances
– Town Centre Character
– Architecture
