Designed in collaboration with Carr, the development will present a cohesive and highly articulated form that complements its heavily landscaped surrounding. Taking cues from the local urban character, a generous setback along Male Street allows for a landscaped ribbon of established trees, providing both private space and direct street access for each of the ground-level apartments.
As early concepts show here, the staggered vertical rendered elements and recessed metal panels combine to give the facade an articulated rhythm, while recessed balustrades create further depth. Concealed planters allow for greenery to overflow the top of the podium facade, softening the podium height and complementing the surrounding established gardens.
Setbacks from the street have been applied to align the northeast facade with adjacent Male Street buildings, and then further recessed to accommodate tree protection zones for existing trees. The building mass is then broken down to introduce inset balconies within the podium, which help to soften the edges of the podium and provide articulation to the respective elevations.
