This project is about combining a weaving network of dispersing introverted pathways and extroverted public spaces, which translate into a dynamic and interesting experience for the residents, and responds to the surrounding context.
The density of the buildings is concentrated to face the busiest streets forming a community front, which gradually peters out towards the more private boundaries, allowing more sun penetration. The timber screening provides security from the street, and is designed at each level to best provide appropriate sunlight and privacy. Residents are encouraged to interact with the architecture by arranging windows and screens to control light and airflow.
The angles of the form allow the apartments to have more north facing windows and north south ventilation. The base design is a modular form that is repeated across the site. This form breaks apart and green space gets larger and provides different apartment types including individual town houses.
