In keeping with the character of the area, the lower floors of this development are divided into separate entities in order to emulate the surrounding townhouses.

Six two storey apartments form the northern facade, with individual access provided from the street, as well as the ground floor. The repetition of the angled hoods creates a rhythm and helps direct pedestrians to the main entrance at the centre of the building. Operable timber screening delivers privacy from the street and creates a sense of depth through layering.

The third floor recedes into the building and is almost hidden by the metal clad angular boxes which project out above it. The recessive nature of the third floor allowed an additional storey to be added to the development as it is effectively acts as a negative level.
