Nubo Chatswood

Finalist 2019
Nubo Chatswood

NUBO is a multi-award-winning example of a successful children’s play space; its “pure play” concept is illustrated through every touchpoint of the design. Collaborating again with PAL Design Architects, Urbanite designed games, activities and rooms for imaginative productions, pure play, curious exploration and other physical activity.

Coogee Beach Surf Lifesavers Pavilion

Finalist 2018
Coogee Beach Surf Lifesavers Pavilion

The Pavilion provides voluntary lifesavers with facilities to operate from, as well as a public amenity block of toilets, showers and change rooms. The clients wanted to engage with a design team who could build upon the unique and playful character of Coogee, while still meeting the strict requirements for signage and wayfinding within a public amenity facility. The functional aim was to assist with the public’s use of the space as well as soften the contemporary architecture.


Merit Award 2018

Working in collaboration with Joey Ho and Patrick Leung of PalDesign Architects, Urbanite was commissioned to work on a new concept in children’s play spaces that is understood to be the first of its kind in Australia. Built around best practices for early childhood education through a lens of play, Nubo supports education and growth through exploration and connection for children up to ten years of age.
