Clifton & Central offered a unique opportunity: to reactivate a neglected Local Centre site, whilst re-instating a heritage corner store to its rightful place as the communal heart of the suburb.
Considered massing gives much appreciated space to the single-res neighbours to the south. Deferential treatment is given to the lovingly restored heritage corner store, and a sensitive material palette takes direct inspiration from the rich heritage surrounds of Mt Lawley.
Not only does Clifton & Central provide much needed housing options to a predominantly single residential area, it does so while thoughtfully considering what makes Mt Lawley such a special place to live. Its rich architectural palette, historical precedence, and the humble local corner store are just small parts of Mt Lawley’s story. Clifton & Central seamlessly integrates of all these factors into a successful development that will enrich Mt Lawley’s local character and community for many years to come.
