Situated below a seventeen storey high rise apartment block, this simple insertion will become a new three bedroom home. Set on an existing platform, the form seeks to mimic that of the existing apartment block, almost as though the addition has been excavated from within. Taking the profile of the negative space beneath the tower, the mono pitched form positively contrasts the existing form.
Invited Competition: Winner
The home is clad in a mosaic of small black tiles which reference yet contrast the small white tiles of the main apartment block. The remaining platform and the roof of the new unit is transformed into a meadow garden. In summary the development becomes an exciting installation to a space otherwise defunct.
