Broadway is located on a rare riverfront site in Crawley. Developed by Edge Visionary Living in collaboration with Hillam Architects, the development comprises 21 apartments over eight levels, luxury residents amenities and extensive landscaping.

The architectural form of the building draws on the historic art deco characteristics typically found in single residences and apartments within the surrounding area. At ground and first floor level, strong linear arches, and ornamental curves with modern detailing interfaces the street, contrasting the glazing and the bronze screens on the upper levels.

The white brickwork and bronze accents to the ground & first floor levels further reinforce these elements and the contrast interrupts the verticality of the building. The lower levels are brought into dialogue with the heritage apartments in the surrounding area and street at a human scale below the canopy of the significant trees on the verge. The subtle curved walls of the ground floor lobby are inviting, providing prominence to the entry, which can be accessed along a gentle ramp colonnade or more directly via the formal front steps, which address the significant slope of the site.

The upper levels consist of a dynamic envelope, a combination of glazed, solid and screen elements which work together to form a light appearance with subtle curves and details which reference the architecture below. The screens are a combination of fixed and moveable elements which give residents flexibility to adapt to the environment whilst still taking opportunity of the views. The expansive frontages to all apartments on dual sides affords 100% cross-ventilation.

Large balconies, undercover and open outdoor spaces, increase solar access and amenity for the residents. The generous amenities for the development are proposed on the North to North – West side of the building with extensive planting throughout.

The design is a contemporary interpretation which is sensitive to the character of the area, in keeping with the current and future of the Broadway precinct.
