Species Refuge in the Urban City

Location: Coolibah Reserve & Underpass of North Heavy Railway, 54 Hannam St, Bardwell Valley NSW 2207, Australia. Size: 4.1 ha. Client: Bayside Council. The project is an urban conservation greenspace project, explaining the understanding of habitat fragmentation, the current status of green network corridors and Coolibah Reserve, as well as how to use landscape design methods to turn the theory of mitigation of habitat fragmentation into reality. Through the analysis of the site's current situation, it can be seen that the Coolibah Reserve is a vital biodiversity area inside the green grid corridor. There has always been a problem of habitat destruction in this area. Furthermore, the traffic system around the site is convenient, and many residents are living there. Therefore, it has a high potential for redesign and uses, attracting more people to visit, making the surrounding communities more vivid and ecological. In the future, it may become an essential environmental green space tourist attraction in the region and even the whole city, driving the local economic and cultural development. The project's primary purpose is to provide a safe refuge for the native flora and fauna in the Coolibah Reserve and provide a green space for the surrounding residents to relax.
