Terry St, Box Hill
- Sector Multi Unit Housing
BKA have redesigned a multi residential apartment building complex on Terry St, Box Hill. It includes a total of 114 units across two buildings that are both seven storey high, one building that is five storey high and a 2 storey basement. The apartments are a mixture of 1-3 bedrooms.
Internalised courtyards provide a pleasant outlook for residents, facilitating the opportunity for casual gathering, with setback terraces providing a buffer between public and private realms. Cross ventilation limits the degree of artificial cooling required in summer with the provision of windows on opposite facades of the building. Masonry wall and concrete floor construction serves to regulate interior temperature fluctuations and the northward orientation of most apartments significantly maximises solar access.
