Kingston Foreshore Development

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

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

Planting around the perimeter of the site creates visual privacy for the units and connects the building to its site, while a through-site link connects 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.
