Description

Newcastle is undergoing a dramatic urban transformation into a more diverse and vibrant city. This landmark project defines a key city corner and contributes to the daily life of Hunter Street.The scheme provides a mix of residential dwellings above a series of boutique office spaces. The prominent corner frontage is composed of angled concrete blades and provides a strong street presence.

 

The office spaces encourage an active and lively corner with pockets of landscaping and seating providing moments of relief along the busy street. A landscaped podium provides a resident's garden which acts as an extension of the apartments. The podium also provides extensive residents amenities including a pool and cabana as well as a gym and work spaces. The precast concrete façade of the tower allows for a play of solid and void with large windows framing views to the sea and the harbour.
