With sweeping views over the beautiful Peace Memorial Rose Gardens in Nedlands, The Gardens is a boutique development of just 43 luxury apartment residences and 7 two-storey townhouses.

Architecturally the project presents an elegant and timeless faƧade consisting of glass and gently curved white columns which meld into the horizontal floor slabs. In specific areas these sculpted columns project higher, bridging two levels and creating visual relief and articulation across the faƧade. The refined palette of materials is balanced by warm timber soffits and feature planting to balcony areas. Further setbacks to the top level and highly articulated internal voids maximises natural lighting to the corridors & lobby spaces and enhances cross ventilation.

The faƧade is softened by sculpted columns with extensive planting that references greenery in adjacent front yards, adding to the landscaped quality of the streetscape. Further set back to the south and unique building layout increases solar access to neighbouring sites, reducing the impact of the development. FaƧade articulation and stepping of building mass significantly reduces perceived bulk and visual impact of the development. Building heights are stepped to provide a more sympathetic transition to streetscape and anticipated future developments to neighbouring sites.

The proposed built form and design aesthetic takes inspiration from the surrounding art deco buildings found in the nearby Nedlands context.

Highly articulated voids maximises solar access to corridors and lobby spaces. Undulating plinth/ railing & vids that bring natural light to the inside create unique corridor experience, with 70sqm of void space which maximises natural light access to internal corridors and contributes to significant increase of cross ventilation to apartments. Sculptural staircase centrally located to encourage physical activity and healthier lifestyle.

Residential amenity includes casual dining & lounge areas, pool & landscaped pool deck, BBQ areas, fully equipped gymnasium, extensive landscaping with deep planting on structure zones.
