Part of a larger mixed use design undertaken by Chasecrown, the proposed residential portion of this project was to form two parts. One integrating with the row houses on the Edmund street frontage, the other providing a buffer between the commercial component of the project whilst also providing a backdrop to the historic conservation zone.
The car park and blighted warehouse building were the disjointed end of the Edmund streetscape. Replacing this, three row houses were designed to essentially restore harmony in the streetscape. The careful combination of form, scale, material and colour, ensured that the new buildings restored the once broken streetscape.
The ‘buffer’ residential building is designed to form a distinct transition between commercial and residential uses. The building is clad in strip spotted gum timber and exploits commanding views over the Adelaide CBD.
