Previously a three-level office building, the elevated position offers exceptional views from all directions. The facade has been reinvigorated, with a clean contemporary exterior softened and subtly textured by natural timber screening. Timber and honest natural materials are continued throughout the design, from the vertical timber battens of the welcoming entrance to the detailing of the apartments.
The building is remarkable for the natural light that is brought deep into the heart through new voids that penetrate the fabric of the existing building. Each apartment has a large balcony accessed via floor-to-ceiling glass doors, ensuring each resident has plenty of natural light, views across the city and access to the outdoors. The apartments’ bedrooms are designed to capture natural light from the main light well, which also provides light to the buildings’ common areas.
