Located in the heart of Ringwood, this proposed multi-unit residential development seeks to embrace its location by referencing aspects of context, street interfaces, and the projected urban development possibilities for the precinct. It aims to provide a considered and appropriate built form, to an already varied and eclectic local architectural environment, on a site uniquely located on the edge of a residential and commercial zone.
The development proposes a four level residential development accommodating 40 apartments, and providing for a mix of tenure: 5 three bedroom apartments; 28 two bedroom apartments; and 7 one bedroom apartments. The development also includes basement car parking, providing a total of 45 car spaces for the residents, along with two visitor spaces.
By utilising materials and design strategies that reference the surrounding suburban landscape, the development nestles itself into the surrounding fabric whilst presenting a contemporary, yet subtle and considered, architectural interjection to the area. The natural materials of brick, timber and black metal, the maximisation of natural light and ventilation to all apartments and appropriate landscaping treatment provide warmth and texture to the building which, along with well-thought-out internal layouts and good amenity, will nurture a sense of belonging for the future residents as well as providing excellent living environments.
