The site sits in the heart of residential Elwood and is surrounded by Edwardian houses with traditional gardens. The design gives the mixed use development both presence and privacy, whilst allowing it to remain relatively unobtrusive and sympathetic to its environment. The use of earthy materials, including timber and red brick, creates an inviting facade, and the gabled roof allows the building to rest comfortably in its residential surrounds.
Inside, the three apartments are light and airy, with floor to ceiling windows and generous terraces. The bright finshes of the apartments, including blonde timber floors, marble bench tops and white joinery contrast with the bluestone pavers and dark grey colour scheme of the terraces to create seperate yet connected living zones. A spacious office fronts Addison Street on ground level, providing a subtle commerical addition to the residential streetscape.
