A refined, design driven approach

A proposed development by Hillam Architects, situated on Edgecombe Street. Positioned in close proximity to Canning Bridge Train Station, Kwinana Fwy and Canning Hwy as well as the greater metropolitan area of Perth. The site is located in a residential setting and is well serviced in terms of amenity within the immediate vicinity.

As part of the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan, the proposed building has the opportunity to become one of the first project to lead the residential redevelopment. In response to the planning scheme, it is proposed that the building be considered as a bench mark for future multi-residential developments.

The general layout of the floor plans places all apartments facing north to maximise on northern light. Circulation corridors are positioned away on the south side with louvred windows that allow solar access.

Perforated metal screens are used on the facade allowing visibility for residents to enjoy park views whilst letting sunlight into the apartment space. Corner apartments on residential floors one to five, are clad with perforated screens arranged in a checker-board pattern breaking down the overall mass. Exterior walls are painted in a dark grey finish, contrasting with the elegant and highly detailed metal screens. Slab edges are expressed through steel PFC details which wrap around the whole floor plate to clearly identify each storey and help break down the building’s bulk and scale.
