A quartet of monotone forms, absorbing the industrial identity of the context and utilising serrations in plan and section to enhance amenity.

Undertaken in collaboration with Turner Studio, this project reinterpreted the industrial identity of the inner south. The typical two bar linear block solution was avoided, breaking the building into four distinct volumes to introduce additional permeability, natural light and cross ventilation into the site. A richly planted central courtyard offers relief and amenity, contrasting to the robust perimeter forms.

The proposal sought to create buildings that are both background; contributing to the continuity of street-wall architecture in the precinct; and foreground; possessing a strong identity on their own.
