Project summary

The Parks Red Hill is a residential development of six buildings bounding Lady Nelson Park. The challenging topography and geometry of the site leads to each building as unique but sharing common architectural design and detailing. Sensitive streetscape character, elegant façades and intriguing roofscape incorporating attic apartments with dormer windows and recessed terraces characterise the development.

Residents engage with their surrounding environment including the park, the local shops, and surrounding streets. The interface with the public realm is achieved through generous setback courtyards, greenery to soften the edges, permeable fencing, wide footpaths with planting, and architectural articulation on the facades.

Generous internal layouts have been carefully designed to provide high quality living space. Quality materials and with no applied finish to allow the façades to age gracefully and with minimal maintenance. Useable recessed balconies, extensive natural ventilation and deep soil planting contribute to a sustainable development.

The Parks Red Hill Residence is a multi–residential development on a rejuvenated site in the inner south of Canberra. The development is made up of 6 buildings encircled by parkland and close to the local

The development was targeted to residnets already living around this suburb who will be attracted to the low–density apartment living. It is a project that delivers a better design and a superior market product.

The apartments have been occupied for almost a year where the residents have been enjoying the connection to surrounding multigenerational amenity where the development enjoys a classical and contemporary elegance.
