DEVELOPMENT PRINCIPLES

5.6 Identity and Legibility

Landmarks, vistas and focal points, through the design of streets, the concentration of commercial, community and civic uses and the use of distinctive landscaping and building forms - all assist in shaping places that are easy to read and memorable.

Landmarks serve to:

  • Orientate people

  • Emphasize a sense of hierarchy

  • Show the way

  • Create distinctive places

Vistas emphasize a clear and useable series of connections between places, and help create a favourable image in the memory of the user.

Focal points positioned at the centre of a node or at major transport interchanges, serve to welcome people with an entrance and sense of arrival within a particular place of interest.

Emphasizing the centre of nodes through physical form such as height, density, landmarks and activity patterns like shopping, business and leisure will help define and create memorable places.
