This inner-city development transformed a historic former bottleyard site into 125 modern apartments.

The site was treated as an entire city block to create a network of sightlines, paths and gardens to link the six buildings.

Designed to emit 50 per cent less carbon than comparable buildings over its lifetime, energy saving features include:

  • Optimising light penetration and crossflow ventilation

  • One of the largest multi-residential solar photovoltaic installations (260kW) in the southern hemisphere

  • Live-feed individual energy monitoring

A rooftop terrace affords panoramic views of the Perth CBD, and parking is provided in a secure underground 155-bay car park.

Old bottles and glass uncovered during the site excavation were recycled and used at the entrance and in other design elements.

This quality project was delivered on time and to budget.

EMCO Building worked closely with the developer and architect to identify opportunities to add value without compromising design aspirations. These savings enabled the developer to 'up spec' elements of apartment specifications to help achieve strong pre-sales in a competitive market.
