New Generation Affordable Housing - Randwick, NSW*
This new building was constructed as an addition to the back of the lot of an existing apartment block. It is a 3-storey building with three basements for car parking. The new age boarding house is designed to suit the requirements of sophisticated professionals looking to live in proximity to their work place, being the local hospital and schools.
The engineering and construction challenges of delivering a 6-storey building on the small footprint of the site and only 50cm from the existing 3-storey brick building were significant. Together with the client, engineers and builder, we felt encouraged to think ‘outside the box’ to find creative solutions for resolving the site’s challenges and ensure the built result met clients objectives.
