Launch Bay in Hobsonville is an integrated neighbourhood and landscape masterplan featuring around 310 residential units over 4.1 hectares.

The site is characterised by an existing coastal edge reserve, a number of existing buildings from its earlier use as an air base, historic open space and a number of established existing trees.

The masterplan is based on a number of considered design principles that aim to celebrate the oval, reflect the site’s history and develop a sense of place that promotes community interaction and ownership. The precinct incorporates bespoke interventions such as sculpture and a sense of playfulness, while maintaining a robust material palette and attention to detailing.
