Vance Harold Park

Vance (Precinct 5) was the final building on the Harold Park masterplan site and contains 232 apartments. The main design concept responded to the context by opening the masterplan building envelope up to the park and the creek on the northern side. This created a spacious courtyard and provides better outlook to apartments. SEPP 65 compliance is subsequently improved with more apartments achieving direct solar access and natural ventilation.

The exterior of the building was conceived as a solid brick mass with carved openings forming a variety of strongly defined windows and balconies. The use of brick is a historical reference to the heritage tram sheds and railway viaducts nearby. Façade mounted planter boxes and green walls within the courtyard allow greenery to grow vertically up the building form.
