This is a project designed under our ASSEMBLE architecture brand.
The proposed design consists of three main forms that run north-south along the site, with a key feature being two raised landscaped terraces that intercept the buildings and occupy more than one third of the footprint. These ‘linear parks’ have been achieved by raising the ground level, concealing the car park beneath, which removes the need for underground parking.
A single-storey podium provides a retail streetscape, giving way to 3- and 4-storey townhouse buildings on both sides, and a stepped 6-storey apartment building in the centre. The existing Brutalist building on the site has been retained in part, and subtle references to the tactile material of the local area have been made throughout the design.
The proposed building is a highly site-responsive design with a strong sustainability, quality and community focus. The design is driven by fundamental principles including a strong emphasis on internal amenity, privacy, light and air access, equitable view lines, and communal facilities.
Diversity of apartment types offers future owners and occupiers a wider variety of lifestyle options, catering to diverse community needs. The housing options include studios; 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments; and 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom townhouses. Large internal and external communal areas – including the landscaped areas and a generous north-facing community room – encourage engagement between neighbours and soften the transition between public streetscape and semi-private shared circulation.
The project is conceived as an exemplar of contextually sensitive, high-quality design and sustainable, small footprint living.
