  • Project Details
  • The Canberra Investment Corporation engaged Stewart Architecture in 2002 for the master planning, architectural and interior design of this residential development on the site of the 'Embassy Motel' in Deakin. The design places four separate apartment buildings on each corner of the site around a central landscaped area at the heart of the scheme.

    The apartments are designed to be open and spacious, offering high quality appointments that take full advantage of the stunning views with good solar access, outlook and privacy. All apartments receive either morning or afternoon sun (in some cases both) and most are corner apartments with cross ventilation.

    The spacious apartments are light filled and the custom made joinery has a gentle range of grey and off-whites that are highlighted with soft and understated hues. High quality materials with elegant finishes are used throughout and accentuated with subtle details including recessed cupboard handles, recessed lighting fixtures and sophisticated kitchen appliances.

    The apartment layouts are designed to accomodate luxury home living in this inner south suburban location. The ambassador fits within the sustainable planning policy objective of greater priority for urban intensification within Canberra's existing urban footprint contributing to the suburb's ongoing vitality as a suburban area.
"They are deliberately generous providing all the amenity of a free standing house within a luxury apartment setting."
