This is a 4, 5 and 6 level apartment building on a corner site in the culturally diverse residential and commercial precinct of Collingwood. The heritage Foy and Gibson building sits immediately to the north.
The facade is articulated as a cluster of brick buildings, reducing its bulk and scale and maintaining a considered relationship with the Foy and Gibson building and neighbouring terraces along Peel St.
The building is split in two halves by a generous circulation ‘ravine’, which ensures direct natural light to all bedrooms, cross flow ventilation to all apartments and multi-level communal walkways for the building.
The development comprises 53 one, two and three bedroom apartments, two ground floor commercial spaces and a basement carpark.
