Isis Apartments, designed by Wood Marsh Architects, is a bold monolithic form containing eight apartments. The building was inspired by the free-standing and symmetrical mansions along Domain Road. The building maintains the setbacks of the surrounding buildings and places the building within the surrounding walled gardens. The required setbacks have been achieved by creating a tapered pyramidal form, reinforcing the singularity of the building. The three fa├žades that are visible from Domain Road are symmetrical, reinforcing the reference to the neo-classical mansions of the area. Balconies are recessed within the form. The building is clad in finely detailed terracotta tiles with deeply recessed fenestration. The material is a reinterpretation of the common use of terracotta, mainly as a roofing material, and brick, in the neighborhood. The multi-residential building reinforces the scales and rhythm of the street without mimicking classical styles.
