East Quarter – Hurstville

HubLiving1

The design of large scale residential projects requires careful apartment planning and considered manipulation of form. We worked on two separate parts of this extensive urban renewal project.

HubLiving3

A 16 level tower building terminates a long view along Forest Road. The ‘parti’ is of two identifiable elements, a linear masonry form, a second more flamboyant wing cranks and twists to optimise views and solar access.

HubLiving4

A second perimeter block form inscribes a central courtyard. Buildings incorporate layered materials reducing visual bulk and creating interest. Apartment layouts include 1 and 2 storey increasing opportunities for cross ventilation and multiple aspects.
