Clever and connected architecture by Jackson Clements Burrows brings together the surrounding built forms. Universities, period architecture, contemporary buildings and local foliage have been interpreted in a nine level design with 143, one, two and three bedroom apartments.
The advantage of two distinct social spaces, from courtyard to rooftop takes on life beyond four walls.
A gridded circular pattern plays across the façade to lighten the texture around cubed forms that slot into an articulated façade. The cantilevered cubes serve a dual purpose offering both privacy and protection for the glazed front balconies that recede into the design beside vertical green blades that rise through the building to reference Rathdowne Street’s elm trees.
Step into the entry foyer, also a modern lounge. Timbers mix with reflective surfaces and a metallic wall that brings the façade design inside making this a convenient place to meet, greet or wait. Security lifts and vehicle ramps access the basement that provides secure parking for cars and bicycles and includes lock-up storage facilities.
