Wellington on the Park comprises 85 units, the top six with undulating ceilings and double height cathedral living spaces under a saw topped roofline, providing unparalleled solar access and space.

“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, “ said Conrad Johnston/Emili Fox, Fox Johnston Director.

Fox Johnston was appointed to design both the architecture and the interiors for the building, ensuring all aspects of the project work together to deliver a seamless indoor and outdoor experience for apartment owners. Apartment orientation and layout, natural robust materials and even the mirror kitchen splashbacks have been conceived to enhance this feeling, reflecting the park and bringing it into the apartment, whilst a mix of façade materials break down the building volume and articulate the façade.

The way the master planning of this building has been resolved ensures that all perimeter apartments faced east and north, and each apartment benefits from a sunny aspect with views and outlook. A central wing within the development contains the larger “garden” apartments which have access to both the central courtyard and rooftop terraces. The terraces and expansive rooftop gardens enhance the sense of being connected to the park and outdoors, while providing sheltered and welcoming places to rest and relax, and grow vegetables.
