Kingston Foreshore Development

The building was a richly modelled horizontal composition which comprised 104 apartments grouped around four glazed atria. The building form emphasised the arc of the original Walter Burley Griffin design for Canberra, and was richly articulated and visually appealing.

The layout of the apartments around glazed atria, minimised the dependence on artificial lighting, heating and ventilation, whilst maximising views and other amenities and also provided an identifiable street address.

Planting around the perimeter of the site created visual privacy for the units and connected the building to its site, while a through-site link connected the foreshore with the Heritage precinct around the Power House.

All common areas are accessible.

A variety of units (10%) have been designed to become adaptable.
