Vivente is a community with the latest in contemporary design and is  located approximately 30km south of Perth within the City of Cockburn, set within Hammond Park. Defined within a beautiful natural landscape, the estate is 33.5 hectares and when complete will deliver a community of 503 home-sites.

Vivente has been designed to maximise the unique attributes of its surroundings. This has been achieved through creating 3.9 hectares of central parkland that features at the heart of the estate. The central parkland has been designed to be an active community focal point, to encourage neighbouring residents to meet. Boardwalks are also a key asset of the public open space and have been provided to encourage walking and community engagement.

As the vision for the estate evolved, it was identified the importance of retaining vegetation to provide an ecological connection to the nearby regional reserve (Frankland Park), located to the west. Species planted within public open space or streetscapes are also of local provenance with approximately half being suited to Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo and other birds foraging species.

Healthy active living is encouraged throughout the estate and supported via the public open space design and infrastructure. The highlight being a unique fitness node named The Hammond Park Climb which capitalises on the natural typography of the location to create exercise opportunities via the 62 stairs, parallel bars, box jumps and monkey bars. The Hammond Park Climb is the first part of a future 1.3 kilometre long exercise circuit, which will promote active health for residents of Vivente. The Hammond Park Climb will ultimately provide a connection to Frankland Reserve Recreation and Community Facility.

The estate design incorporates a variety of lot typologies, from low maintenance cottage lots to spacious family sized lots with generous frontages, delivering housing diversity and something for everyone. Partnering with active builders helps to deliver a diversity of affordable housing solutions for Hammond Park.

Vivente showcases the latest in contemporary design and innovative neighbourhood planning creating a vibrant community in easy reach to a range of schools, including the recently opened Hammond Park Secondary College, shopping, sports and public transport amenities.
