• Prominent residential development in prime location
• Mix of apartment block and town houses achieves appropriate scale
A significant residential development in a mixed-use zone, Crest presents two distinct building forms which mediate between the busy commercial thoroughfare of Great North Road and the single storey dwellings of the adjacent heritage neighbourhood. A 6 level apartment building maximises site potential (following a successful application to exceed height restrictions) while a row of two level, north facing terrace houses moderates the bulk of the larger block.
High quality design details add value to the development – including a naturally-lit central atrium, green wall, generous balcony spaces and full height windows which maximise the northern aspect and the panoramic views. Exterior detailing – including vertical aluminium fins, timber soffits, and expressed textured concrete panels – softens and enhances the appearance of the building. Private courtyards and landscaping treatment to the northern edge ensures that the terrace houses are well screened from neighbouring housing and the street.
