Keast Park is a finely crafted project that sits firmly, yet gently in the landscape, marrying architecture and landscape to define the transition from coastal dune to the built environment. The project demonstrates an exemplary sensibility to landscape and community.
At the core of the project is a simply stated and well detailed boardwalk that protects the reinstated dune landscape, and shelters the grassy local park and community activity. The deck winds underneath a raised building, providing a strong physical and visual connection between the bowling greens to the north and the park to the south. The project explores the integration and overlap of multiple community facilities and activities, promoting a stronger sense of community ownership and engagement.
