lahznimmo architects and Spackman + Mossop Landscape Architects formed a joint venture to provide the Sydney Catchment Authority architectural, urban design and landscape services for the preparation of a masterplan for Warragamba Dam, which was required subsequent to the construction of the new $500 million auxiliary spillway. The masterplan works included the Visitor and Operations Centre, the Bulk Storage Facility and various ancillary structures, picnic shelters, lookouts, landscape works and roadways. The masterplan resolved pedestrian and vehicular conflicts, as well as separating operational and public vehicular traffic. The revised road network consolidated car parking to discrete areas and strengthened pedestrian and cycleway networks throughout the parklands as well as to the adjacent township of Warragamba.
