6 levels, 138 Apartments
PB&A Project Architect: Matthew Simpson
- Special housing initiative
- Maximised GFA
Practical design solutions in this special housing development ensure that economy of scale balances construction costs and land value to meet the market in this suburban location.
Adjacent to open green space and with views to nearby Mount Wellington, the apartment floor plans maximise natural light and ventilation to interior spaces. A mix of apartment typologies (1, 2 and 3 bedroom) will ensure a varied demographic and communal outdoor entertaining areas promote community interaction. Durable concrete construction and modern design, combined with classic timber floors and generous covered balconies, ensure that these homes will be enjoyed and valued by generations to come.
Intelligent design solutions mean that the building height is mitigated by the geography of the site, with the effective ‘ground level’ height of the building being significantly lower than the streetscape and existing residential houses. Designed to a high standard, this development is a visually sophisticated composition which makes a positive impact on the neighbourhood.
