This project is a nine-level luxury apartment building located on a unique site at the base of Mount Street and Kings Park in Perth. The development features 21 apartments, two exclusive penthouses and a café finished to a very high standard. Sustainable design features have been incorporated in order to reduce energy consumption, water usage and long term maintenance of the building.

Design features:

  • Pre-cast concrete construction
  • Two-core design maximises privacy, light, views and energy efficiency
  • Embedded circular windows of varying sizes
  • Vertical green wall irrigated by rainwater collected on the roof

Design challenges include:

  • Close proximity to freeway traffic
  • Site constraints and limited access
  • Design to withstand strong winds and harsh climate conditions
