Lakeway is a small residential development of 39 lots in the coastal suburb of Swanbourne, west of Perth. Its name is derived from the site's former use - Lakeway Drive-In Theatre.The development sits on a wooded dunal escarpment, overlooking Lake Claremont. HASSELL provided planning and landscape architecture services for the redevelopment of the former Lakeway Drive-In site in Swanbourne. The residential subdivision capitalises on its topography and proximity to Lake Claremont and was developed in close consultation with the surrounding community. While recalling the heritage of the site, the design retains and rehabilitates large portions of valued bushland and provides extensive high quality parkland amenity. All lots have been configured to maximise passive solar benefits and are supported by detailed design guidelines that mandate the sustainability principles of energy and water conservation, resource reduction and reuse and minimum built form requirements. This ensures that Lakeway is one of the most sustainable, high quality urban residential areas in Perth.
