When the late afternoon sun hits the façade of Tzannes’ newest mixed use residential and commercial building on the western perimeter of central Sydney, Australia, its more than 1150 anodized aluminum mesh shutters glow pure gold, softly filtering the light into the apartments behind and illuminating the precinct below. [See animation link below]. Designed in close collaboration with their client, Loftex, and their in-house architects, the 10,000 sq m building replaces several runs down, non-heritage four story warehouses previously on the site with a new mixed use commercial and residential development containing 119 apartments, over 14 levels. Three levels of basement car-parking, bike storage, storage, and services are included. The ground floor contains through-site active uses (retail/commercial space) with frontages to James Lane and Day Street, residential lobby, some services and entry to the carpark.
