Set back well behind the Holmes Road, the proposal is a reaction to the wider heritage context and the local interfaces of the rear laneway and Holmes Road. Materials such as red brick are complimented by the more ephemeral cloaking of the roof form with its articulation of shape, openings and interplay of shadow which has been carefully considered. Internally the apartments are oriented to the North where possible, with vertical circulation to the South. Internal circulation and corridors are punctuated with daylight and pockets of green space.
The building retains two commercial spaces to the Holmes road street which help to maintain diversity within the precinct and assists with the forming of an activated entrance to the development.
