The Rochford

Designing both the building and its interiors, our concept for this 76 apartment project in Erskineville, Sydney was to create a ‘forever apartment to call home’ – a place that seamlessly connected the idea of large family living with the modern urban lifestyle.

Changing demographics are driving a new maturity in the apartment market. Residents are choosing an apartment over a house and wanting to live there long term. The challenge was to create a series of apartments providing all the things people expect from a large family home, in more compact form.

Clever design and high-quality materials ensured connectivity to its area and streetscape. The design for this building therefore starts from the viewpoint of how well you live – the collection of ‘houses’ seamlessly connects the inside with outside – filling apartments with light and breezes and maximising views to the surrounding districts.

Owner-occupiers are at the core of the design, with integrated sustainability measures achieving a high building performance of cross ventilation and solar access. Concrete, brick and metal cladding offers a robust and detailed façade, complimented by its soft interior palette. An outdoor roof terrace, with herb gardens, rooftop yoga platforms and entertaining spaces, provides green relief.
