This new apartment building is located on a site previously occupied by 1980s, 4 storey apartment blocks. The six-storey building comprises a piloti parking, duplex townhouses, lateral apartments, and a penthouse with its own roof garden. Mediating between the different sizes of the surrounding structures, the inserted volume both respects the scale of the street and reflects it.
The five storeys that can be seen from street level offer a contemporary interpretation of the surrounding area, with a distinct articulation of base, middle and crowns architectural context. Local context is also referenced through the colours and materials of the façades.
The building has a symmetrical composition, in the centre is the larger double entrance for the apartments and the piloti. The windows differ in design for each element of the residential scheme. The two-storey townhouses, for example, have balconied French windows, while the lateral apartments on the two storeys above have broader openings divided by concrete mullions. The penthouse at the top, with its higher ceilings, is set back from the street.
Restrained but solid materials are used throughout, with bronze railings and window and door frames outside and terrazzo floors in the communal areas.
