Free wireless in award winning Robelle Domain
Technology has played a major role in the design of SEQ’s newest urban parkland Robelle Domain, delivering a community park capable of drawing people away from the television or computer screen.
Maha Sinnathamby, Chairman of Springfield Land Corporation said combining technology with nature in shared green space had enhanced the sense of community by encouraging people to meet and interact in a relaxed and healthy way.
“We wanted to create something unique at the heart of Springfield that kids, students and families and residents would be drawn to and that’s where the idea of introducing technology to the park came from,” he said.
Mr Sinnathamby said Robelle Domain included computerised playground equipment to encourage both interactive and active play.
“The play equipment has the ability to allow children to punch in different patterns and sequences into a play experience and then interact with it on that basis.
“It has already been recognised for its unique design by receiving two awards including the Overall Winner at the Australian International Design Awards in July this year,” he said.
Robelle Domain incorporates artistic light columns enabling light, sound and projection events that can be programmed into infinite sequences and artistic expressions.
“There are seven feature towers, each nine metres in height, which define the central amphitheatre lawn and provide light and sound displays after dark – bringing the park to life by night as well as during the day.
The park also boasts free wireless internet access so visitors to the park or students can just wander down from their classes and soak up the beautiful natural setting.” Mr Sinnathamby said.
