Stepping back from a sloped site in Epping, this 141-apartment development takes an elegant approach to passive design. Three buildings and 6 levels house generously proportioned apartments ranging from studios to 3-bedroom apartments and penthouses, in addition to accessible common spaces, a top-floor mezzanine, and 180 car spaces. In each apartment, living spaces are carefully oriented and feature extensive glazing to maximise solar access, while articulated facades and dual aspects enable excellent cross ventilation year-round.
The project was met with industry acclaim, and was a finalist for both the World Architecture Festival 2018 and Property Council Innovation Awards 2018.
