Architecture / Residential / Under construction

City: Forest Hill
No. Apartment: 72
Client: Landream
Status: Complete

Responding to the fine grain of the surrounding residential buildings, Chase Apartments break the continuous built form into a series of buildings.

This approach is then reinforced through the use of variations in the widths, heights and solidity of balconies, planting and materials.

The southern half of the project features peaked roof forms that allow highlight glazing to provide northern sun into the south facing apartments where as the northern half reinforces the fine grain by framing the individual forms.

Timber handrails to balconies add a level of detail and tactility to the overall building.

Whilst the carpark is completely hidden from the street, it is typically naturally ventilated and enclosed through a use of screens and screen planting.
