Text description provided by the architects. This three-unit development called for a smart design for its small site. Each residence required solar access, and comfortable living space.

At first sight, the new building seems to evoke an image of unfamiliarity or of being alien. However as one looks closer at the forms, materials, and the planning, one recognises the familiar language of the Australian inner city suburbs. The outer form is a response to the iconic sawtooth industrial buildings in the suburb’s history, along with the chevron, and makes reference to the paintings of Australian artist Jeffrey Smart. The new buildings sit comfortably within the urban-scape.
