Our proposal for 6 Auburn Street, Point Frederick is a response to a rich and diverse urban and commercial fabric in an area undergoing rapid change.
Point Frederick is characterised by its social and economic diversity, which is reflected in the uplift of density seen in the area. The objective of this development is to add quality dwellings of high amenity across a range of configurations at different price points. The proposed apartment mix is intended to reflect the broader locale’s demand of apartment types, in particular offering efficient and affordable apartments. The 2-bedroom apartments are given an open utility space or “family hub” that can be adapted to suit the needs of residents in their various life stages regardless of the household composition. The space could variously be a playroom, study, or storeroom at different stages in a household’s life.
The space is based on international best practice requirements for accommodating families and children in high rise accommodation
This design for a boutique residential flat building that will deliver 8 new homes. Podium terrace units include large private outdoor spaces screened from neighbours with designed landscape planting. The form of the building and articulation of its façade frame views to the nearby water for the upper units whilst simultaneously providing privacy from nearby large developments. The building facades incorporate an appropriate degree of articulation in the form of splayed walls, projecting and inset balconies, architectural features, and material combinations. A palette of both traditional and contemporary materials are employed to the proposal considered complementary to the tactility of the build forms within the streetscape.
