This eight storey apartment building located in one of Australia's densest urban environments has sought to overlap the old material form of its neighbours with delicate layered glass façade elements acting as privacy screens. The layered façade captures the reflections of sky water and illuminates the translucent building mass by night. At street level the fragmented glass façade rests on a sandstone base that incorporates recycled timber landscape elements evoking the materiality of the nearby wharves. The planning of the whole-floor, three bedroom apartments allow for ample cross ventilation. The deep balconies on the western façade protect the windows that face the view. In addition to this, the western façade is equipped with motorised blinds on the balcony edge. These blinds are operated automatically by the building management system and are designed to prevent the afternoon sun from hitting the glass.
