Bellevue Hills Apartments (2)
A nearby project for the same loyal client as ‘Bellevue Hills 1’ in one of the most highly developed streets in the Eastern Suburbs. Massive ‘neighbourly’ challenges dominated with large apartment buildings surrounding the site. Site void areas were employed to bring natural light into wet area spaces below the excavated site levels.
A single apartment per level with central lift access provided the feeling of a penthouse style apartment on every level. Large covered terraces on the east provide sheltered entertainment areas while capturing the quality harbour views available from the site.
Intensive privacy requirements to neighbouring properties provided an opportunity to enhance the facades with privacy screens, planting and glazing forms.
Concrete and masonry, along with limestone internal flooring provides extensive thermal mass throughout for winter sun storage and a cool environment in summer.
