Located in a constricted commercial setting with excellent westward views over parkland to the city, the building has six apartments on three storeys, with retail on the ground floor.
The new building facilitates a transition between the differing scales of the two neighbouring buildings, sensitively integrating a contemporary structure into a complex and established streetscape. The apartments are arranged to maximise views and privacy, and each apartment runs through the depth of the building to provide cross ventilation. The landscaped roof of the car park enhances the outlook to the north.
The building was constructed efficiently with straightforward detailing, and develops the logic of simple precast concrete construction. It capitalises upon the raw expressive combination of natural materials and a simple bold form, with hight-quality internal finishes.
