In 2017 Cameron Chisholm Nicol designed a multi-residential development with ground floor commercial for Georgiou in West Perth. The scheme delivers a vision for a vertical urban village and community.

Set along an established tree lined street, in close proximity to the CBD and Leederville town centre, the site offers the opportunity for quality and commercially viable high density residential development.

Following the 10 principles of Design WA, the scheme is composed of a 3-storey podium with two slender towers and features activated streetscapes, quality communal areas and landscape, natural light and ventilation to lobbies and corridors and passive surveillance. With a focus on building community, the project has been designed with a diversity of apartment types and communal amenities at podium level including a library, gym, communal kitchen and dining, playground, extensive green zones and vegetable gardens. The landscaped podium serves as a meeting ground for residents of both towers.

The project is also designed to maximise building performance without the cost, with over 75% of apartments naturally ventilated and staged construction for buildability.

The public interface along Troode St includes a cafe and clear lobby entrances and vertical circulation indicated by 3-storey golden arches. Podium apartments sleeve the carpark and allow for passive surveillance, adding to the vibrancy of the streetscape. Balconies to the tower apartments are articulated to maximise views of the city and the hills, creating a more dynamic form.

In following the principles of Design WA we were able to design a high quality inner-city living for a diversity of users that is economically, environmentally and aesthetically valuable.
