The Wilson Street Co-op is intended to be no less than a landmark example of best practice design, sustainability and liveability. A relatively constrained site, but located in the heart of vibrant precinct our design is conceived to blur the barrier between the communal spaces of the building with outside public space to create a building that is firmly stitched into its context. Solid walls to the East and West of the site will allow us to maximise the street frontage, while pulling back from the Northern façade will provide access to Northern light into the apartments and common areas. All apartments will achieve cross ventilation and communal spaces will have access to air, natural light and greenery.
The Southern and Northern facades will be open and transparent in with balconies and glass and allow for a strong connection to the ground level public open space though planters and greenery which we intend to allow the grow up the building, culminating in a communal rooftop which will provide a shared “backyard” for residents. The design of the Wilson street Co-op is grounded in the principles of high apartment amenity, a shared and connected community and long term sustainability.
