Create a medium density apartment building within the developing area of St Clair. Define a contemporary and attractive complex that elegantly enhances the existing views to the city, hills and coastline with well-designed spaces.
Located on a major boulevard within the St Clair development, Cheltenham Apartments are positioned on a key site that fronts the central park space. Identified early on during the project was that the building should make a valuable contribution to the urban identity of the precinct. The final design incorporates different compositions and materials to address each frontage in a unique way and makes reference to the previous land use as a racecourse. The relationship to its adjacent lower-scale neighbours and incorporation of public artwork in the main façade strengthens the precinct’s sense of identity and presents the development as a pivotal entrance site.
