Tucked beside the railway line in the eastern most portion of inner Colac is a new site for Coles and Speciality stores. On a sensitive site and bordering Barongarook creek trail, considerable time has been spent providing architectural and landscape screening solutions, to ensure council are satisfied the amenity is not compromised.
The requirement for screening to the less amenable aspects of the supermarket façades has in fact turned these into the most interesting parts of the development. A sculptural timber screen with associated planting forms a beautiful entry sequence from the proposed trail, blending with a colour feature wall to transition from the natural environment of the creek to the built form.
