nettletontribe was appointed by Woolworths to design a significant project for the Double Bay community, incorporating Woollahra Council’s library, paved pedestrian plaza and key retail amenities including a Woolworths supermarket. The project has reinvigorated the southern precinct of Double Bay which had been in decline for several years.

Woollahra Library was relocated to a new four storey office building on New South Head Road. A three-level building was constructed incorporating the new Woolworths supermarket, a large grocer/ provider, speciality retail including a liquor outlet and carparking for 500 cars.

Kiaora Lane has transformed from a traffic dominated service lane to an active public domain which also encouraged the renewal of the southern frontages of existing New South Head Road properties. This is a great example of Local Government and the private sector balancing objectives and working toward an outcome which benefits the people and businesses of Double Bay.
