Elenberg Fraser developed a masterplan for the site as well as the design for the three buildings that sit on it. The structures are raised, attached to the ground at strategic points, permitting a wild, native landscape to run riot across the site, growing in and around the buildings. A straight, front façade contrasts with stepped down volumes to the back carving out a scalloped curve. Façade treatments are a nod to Paris’ Bibliothèque Nationale – a silvery glass shell with semi-reflective qualities, activated by the changing positions of the thin timber screens fitted to the interior of each apartment.
