Scope – Architecture, Interior design & Project Management
Completion – 2001
A compact site with long street frontage and large red river gum in one corner. Situated in Kent Town, a rich mixed use zone containing a diversity of light industry, business and residential buildings.
To design a mixed-use development comprising a self contained office and multiple residential dwellings.
The solution was principally based on producing a building form which embodied the semi industrial nature of the zone and maintain an unfragmented pedestrian streetscape. The main building contains 7 terraces all street facing with rear vehicle access from one street point. The material pallet is classic and characteristic of the area, red brick, render and timber. The 7 townhouses offer split-level accommodation over 3 levels with lofty ceilings, large terrace and 3 bedrooms. The office is positioned on the main corner and is set around the large red river gum.
