 The project involves the consolidation of 2 neighbouring properties into a single block for a new multi-residential development. completed this year by the Sydney based design outfit  BKK

”The project site has been the subject of several unsuccessful planning applications in the past, and is affected by a complex range of planning policies and physical constraints. The design .” BKK says.

The building facades are highly articulated to reduce the overall building’s mass. The design draws on the materiality and expression of local, historical housing types that are reinterpreted in a contemporary manner.
