About the project

Arcadia had the opportunity to work with Architectus and City West Housing to develop this inner city affordable housing project within the Carriageworks Precinct. The strong contextual design response was drawn from a rich site history and landscape character. The design is responsive to architectural form in terms of materiality and structure with an emphasis on providing zones for microclimatic benefit. The interface with the public realm was an area considered in detail with the surrounding character continued up to and across the boundaries. Social engagement has been promoted at the streetscape interface with benches and open spaces while the internal areas are organised to cater for various sized gatherings. Native perennials and canopy trees are utilised to create an urban forest for a portion of the landscape with a post industrial contextual planting response reserved for the edges.
