Abode – Mosman
Set within a Heritage Conservation Area this proposal contains 16 residential apartments with retail space along the ground floor. A bold two level streetscape wall forms a continuation of the dominant pattern within the urban context.
A modern interpretation of classic built form engages the upper levels with a set-back forming a terrace facing the main street frontage. Subtle changes in material and a lightened sense of detail emerges as one approaches the upper levels defining each tier of the building and its relationship to the overall form, solid to void balance, and scale of surrounding buildings.
