The site, reclaimed and redefined as part of the Victoria Park brown field redevelopment precinct in Sydney, is long and thin. An island site. A ‘tall’ building holds the northern end of the site whilst the ‘long’ building follows the arc of Defries Avenue.Save this picture!ElevationThe ‘tall’ building is assembled as a series of stacked boxes. Taking advantage of the city views, internal living areas are pushed closer to the building edge. In response to the internal planning the boxes are stretched and pulled between levels and facades.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanWhilst the ‘tall’ building is defined by the edge of Cooper Place, the sweeping arc of Defries Avenue defines the ‘low’ building.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanTo take advantage of the solar access, apartments are turned towards the north. Projecting bay windows, both single level and double height, allow apartment bedrooms to be closer to the external façade, further animating the building form.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanAt street level a mix of retail uses with a large covered terrace activates the base of the ‘tall’ building. The terrace area folds into the ‘pocket park’ between the two buildings. This interstitial space provides an entry forecourt to both buildings whilst the cantilever to the ‘long’ building heightens the drama of procession into the building. At the southern end a double height entry space with oversized piloti hold the corner of the building.Save this picture!Typical Floor PlanThe 14-storey ‘tall’ building and 6-storey ‘long’ building of APEX comprise 153 apartments. A 400sqm rooftop garden terrace creates a park-like space with seating areas, shade trees, a BBQ deck and an outdoor cinema.Project gallerySee allShow lessHow Engineering the Serpentine Almost Brought AECOM’s Computers to a HaltArchitecture NewsDaniel Libeskind to Design Physics Building at Durham UniversityArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Waterloo NSW 2017, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.
