With a diverse mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, Evans Street provides a range of high-quality living options for a predominantly single residential area. With a particularly sensitive site at a transition point between the R15 and R100 zones, a sympathetic, multilayered design response was essential.
The main bulk of the building is pushed away from the sensitive east, while street setbacks are also stepped, increasing necessary breathing room to the single residential zoning. The zone transition is directly expressed through the built form, with horizontality emphasised to the east, transitioning to a vertical expression through the sweeping curves of the sculptural board-formed concrete planters.
95 Evans Street creates not only a unique landmark in an architecturally rich area, but through its sensitive design response it creates a positive exemplar for both future developments in the area and wider METRONET precincts.
