Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing

Project summary

Meridian consists of two buildings of 6 storeys and 8 storeys set within a landscaped sequence of private and public spaces. The development comprise both private residential and affordable housing. The site is located along a natural ridgeline that follows the alignment of The Kingsway. The elevated location beside Miranda park allows for uninterrupted views to the north towards the Georges River and the City skyline beyond.

The organic building forms take their inspiration from the gentle curves of the surrounded elevated topography. The materials used are quality, low maintenance finishes such as – concrete, brick, and metal cladding. The colours are chosen from a classic monochromatic palette of whites and dark greys that bring a sense of calmness to the composition and ensure a long-term quality to the facades. The built form and landscape elements have been designed to embrace ESD principles, both passive and active.

Close to Westfield Shopping Centre and Miranda railway station, Meridian was a vision was in the making. “You can be on a train (two stops) or bus and be at Cronulla Beach in minutes,” says Nick Murdoch, Project Manager, who with the others on the team noticed the relaxed lifestyle of local residents living at Miranda. “We were looking for a luxurious feel but one that was affordable,” says Joseph Ajaka, project director at Altis Property Partners. However, the quality of the design was the driving factor, with an emphasis on space, finishes and detail from the outset.
