alexandria multi unit residential

Just finished a new design.

Tricky orientation and a very tight site.

Needed to crank the front balconies to achieve complying solar access. Gave a more interesting take on the usual egg crate facade treatment that seems to be "de rigueur" in RFB designs now-a-days. Being in a flood zone made basement access even more difficult but it works with a raised ramp entry and corkscrew style levels below. A mix of single level and two level units provide for a good mix.

A touch of brutalism with some softer finishes.















Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em...

Here's the preliminary design for a new residential building in Alexandria. A mixture of modernism and brutalism.

The challenge has been to get effective solar access to as many units as possible. The T-bar shape allows for separation of the rear section from future adjoining developments.

If the planners preliminary feedback is positive then there will be a mad scramble to complete a DA submission.
