IMAGINE

  • Create a 73 apartment development with 3 commercial tenancies and communal recreational areas, to sit in a landscaped area with a basement car park of 107 car bays.

CHALLENGE

  • Council requirement for 3m wide car bays for all parking.

  • Located in Port Hedland in harsh weather environment and cyclonic conditions.

SOLVE

  • By challenging the Town of Port Hedland on the car bay widths required for 4-wheel drives, successfully rewrote Planning Regulations. This added 13 more  car bays thus 13 more apartments, creating a significant uplift to the project.

  • Designed to capture cooling breezes and stunning coastal views, each apartment having large balconies and open plan living.

  • Selected mixed building palette designed for low maintenance solution to the harsh environment.
