‘The Call for Great Ideas was an open process, established on the premise that many minds working together can come up with great ideas.’ (UrbanGrowth)

As an urban design firm based within the precinct, KI Studio are passionate about the future of the area and submitted nine ideas to the “Great Ideas” initiative, and were delighted that two of these were accepted for publication by UrbanGrowth .


Transforming Bays to Clean Water – our ambitious sustainability proposal to clean White and Blackwattle Bays’ water to enable Sydneysiders and tourists to swim in the Bays in 20 years time.



Silo Rehabilitation – innovative, adaptive reuse ideas for the obsolete silo structures to express the cultural heritage of the area and engage the community.

*The Bays Precinct comprises 95 ha of government land and 5.5 kilometres of harbour front along White Bay, Blackwattle Bay, Johnston Bay and Rozelle Bay, including landmarks such as Glebe Island, White Bay Power Station and The Fish Market. UrbanGrowth NSW was commissioned to lead the transformation of The Bays Precinct into a vibrant hub of enterprise, activity and beautiful spaces. To encourage public participation and include as many people as possible in the transformation of The Bays Precinct, UrbanGrowth conducted a Call for Great Ideas, calling on anyone to share their vision for the future of the Precinct.
