Design, use and management

24 of 25 Principle 24

Principle 24:

Ensure that buildings ‘turn the corner’ and address side streets with animated façades to draw activity and pedestrian movement through the district.

Example actions:

Design and animate corner frontages on ground and upper floors through creative window displays and engaging passersby by revealing internal activity to encourage movement around buildings and into the wider district.

Use lighting in windows and on building façades to provide spectacle and delight for passersby to contribute to the sense of vibrancy within the streetscape, particularly at night, to add to the feeling of security and passive surveillance.
