Bennetts Lane, Melbourne
The development proposes an eight storey building with commercial space on the ground floor. Above this are five generous, multi-level apartments including a penthouse with a rooftop pool. The apartments include double-height spaces and balconies which are expressed on the building’s façade.
The site conditions have dictated that all glazing be located within the two facades with street frontages. These facades form a strong contrast with the walls on boundary. The introduction of black and white banding to the facades delineates individual apartments. In tandem with the detailed design of the glazing, the facades include a multitude of scales which belies the building’s complexity.
