WSUD Features & Objectives

The Jellicoe precinct is located at the edge of the city and the harbour on contaminated land. The public space is designed as a catalyst for development. The objectives established were:

  • Extensive rain gardens that receive and treat all site water from Jellicoe St and surrounds;
  • Establishes a unique civic streetscape language for Auckland on Jellicoe St;
  • Introduces rich, lush palette of native planting that recalls Auckland’s gully ecologies;
  • Large retention wetland that detains and treats storm water;
  • Outflow to harbour expressed poetically via salvaged tidal steps;
  • Utilises WSUD as key structuring elements within the precinct, ensuring they are visible



This project is an exemplar of innovative public space design. It demonstrates the importance of public space by implementing landscape before building. It demonstrates a coherent use of new and old materials and elements, and integrates sitewide stormwater treatment.
