835 High Street creates a new benchmark for medium density housing by using core design principles, considered apartment planning and enduring materials.
The distinctive grid pattern was approached in consideration to its contribution to the streetscape. Every horizontal and vertical frame aligns perfectly from the outside over five levels, one atop the other in a linear pattern. These applied repeating elements – similar to music or other forms of art where shape, space, colour and texture are used to induce rhythm – gives a sense of movement on the façade, which is created by using a well-defined and ordered street wall.
The apartment planning process was underpinned by biophilic design principles and the desire to provide each home with axis to external views and ventilation. The resulting ambiance is dramatic. As you enter each apartment and journey through each room, the omnipresent natural light offers a sense of calming expansiveness.
