Building articulation/ detailing, materials and roof form have been integrated within the treatment of the design to reflect the beach-side culture of the locality. A careful composition of building elements, textures, materials and colours ensure this development will contribute to the village centre’s identity providing a cohesive visual appearance whilst maintaining the small-scale village topography of the immediate context.
North Sydney, TBA
The site is located on the outer edge of what would be considered the CBD where a gradual change can be seen with the emergence of new residential apartments now becoming more apparent on the fringe of the commercial centre. A modern juxtaposition of building elements, textures and materials creates a bold presence along the street-scape. Framed masonry elements are used to break down the massing of the podium and provide a stepping transition between the neighbouring buildings. An art/ screen facade between these framed structures carries through to ground level emphasizing the main lobby entrance point.
Alexandria , TBA
A raw blend of modern building elements, textures and materials have been juxtaposed against the fabric of an existing façade, a portion of which has been retained to recognize its intrinsic value within the streetscape. Cargo Lane utilizes a palette of materials including steel, concrete and metal paneling within the design detailing and articulation to acknowledge and respect the sites relationship to previous industrial uses. The use of a bold concrete frame along the main Wyndham Street frontage accentuates the building entry, which is broken down via a series of screen louvers and vertical gardens. Fixed timber screen elements and long draping ivy aid in softening the main structural fabric of the development creating a harmonious rhythm of light and shadow within the design. Deep soil landscaping within a secure internal communal courtyard provides for a green urban retreat to be utilized by all occupants. Alexandria will benefit from a unique development contemporary in design and complimentary to its urban history and immediate context.
