The Loftus Apartments by Carrier and Postmus Architects reflects in its spatiality, materials and landscape relationships of the private and public, locale, memory and aspiration.
The project is about echoing human scale and the locale. A toned base at street is enriched with landscape, underpinning the upper levels of shimmering white brick. Sculpted concrete and brickwork provide a robust quality. Residences are protected from the busy street by solid façade with recessed windows framing city views internally. Protected balconies and terraces provide a panorama to the City.
Generous, livable environments connected to outdoor amenities and environment is key with architecture and landscape presenting as a unified ensemble. Landscape is threaded through entry, vistas and gardens. A sculpted heart provides communal access offers panoramas of city and nature, with spatial generosity for solar + ventilation, social interactions + privacy.
