In response, we designed a series of slender building volumes wrapping around the eastern and northern boundary – fronting onto a series of rear garden spaces. Each of the 85 apartments were individually designed, providing seamless indoor/outdoor spaces. We resolved the masterplan by ensuring that all perimeter apartments faced east and north, with each apartment benefitting from a sunny aspect with views and outlook.
Integrated sustainability measures were pivotal in the design process. Sculptural metal clad roof forms, in particular, were sensitively modulated to open up to the north and allow sunshine into all parkside apartments. The terraces and expansive rooftop gardens enhance the sense of being connected to the park and outdoors, providing sheltered spaces to rest, relax, and grow vegetables.
“The site allowed us to maximise the GFA while being left with additional height. We took advantage of the additional height to articulate the facade with the roof features and create cathedral-like ceilings and capture northern light” -Emili Fox
