Slate House is a new three level, high-performing, high-end apartment building of 14 spacious homes, in the bayside suburb of Brighton.
The design is the careful articulation of built form to fit gently within the street character; sensitive to the size and presence of other houses and to its direct neighbour Cardinia House, a significant heritage home. We looked to Architecture that spoke of scale, texture and materiality to inform the design. We aimed for the building to appear domestic, small and loveable. The intention was a synthesis of the prevailing rich history, heritage character and domestic context, to show there was an alternative to the overbearing and clinical modernist box.
Slate House delivers beautiful, thoughtful and refined homes focused on aesthetics, context and sustainability. Achieving an outstanding NatHERS rating of 8.2 stars, Slate House is Brighton’s first fossil-fuel-free multi-residential apartment building.
