Federation villages community facilities
The site is located to the west of the city in the Lucas masterplanned community. Located just 7k’s west of Ballarat’s central business district on the Avenue of Honour. Lucas covers 220 hectares and is the largest community to be masterplanned and constructed in Ballarat’s history. Lucas is open and inviting, well connected and provides the facilities and infrastructure to live life locally with shopping, schools, leisure and community centres set amongst large tracts of open green parkland.
The Leisure Precinct forms the heart of the project and welcomes both residents and visitors at the central arrival point. A range of social and service functions occur within this precinct area such as lawn bowls, an outdoor activity area and a swimming pool.
The site has its longest axis exposed to Northern solar access which offers benefits to the homes and central community areas. The master planning develops this potential through the general orientation of North-South lots. The house designs then work in tandem with this to capture the solar access to the relevant side, rear or front outdoor spaces.
