Located in Collingwood off the vibrant Smith Street, this development plays with negative and positive space reinterpreting traditional inner city working class suburban materials.

Type:  Development

Location:  Collingwood

Client:  Hickory Group

Build:  Hickory Group

Photography:  John Gollings

Located on Stanley Street in Collingwood, off vibrant Smith Street, the area had for some time been going through the urban renewal process, mostly consisting of renovations + refurbishments within a traditional warehouse environment.

 

The client’s brief was simply to create a new apartment complex in the Collingwood precinct that had a marketable difference to other developments already in the area.

 

Maximising the site, the development was to provide a diversity in unit sizes with different units offering varying facilities with all having access to natural light + secure on-site car parking, the result was a five storey complex accommodating 30 apartments, 1 commercial tenancy + 37 on-site car parks.

 

Constructed of concrete, aluminium, steel + glass Dig Design had created a building that draws on the past of the Collingwood area yet reinterprets these common materials in a new way, creating a stimulating place to live.

 

The design focus for the building is its facade, a steel frame forms a surface that articulates +  draws the publics vision away from the private space of the apartments + provides a sculptural quality.

 

 

continued …

Three feature windows break up the façade, not as a reflection of a single unit but to articulate the building as a whole, creating a strong simple image.  The central window showcases a large format community artwork.

 

This project contributes to contemporary design by challenging the idea of surface and facade through the use of positive + negative spaces, creating a development that invigorates + interacts with its surrounds, offering a vibrant place to live.

Located in Altona overlooking Cherry Lake, Dig Design was engaged to design a development with a marketable difference.  The client would be retaining one of the townhouses to live in, and selling the other.

 

The floor plans for Cain Court are very generous, accommodating four bedrooms and two bathrooms.  Reverse living with large first floor alfresco dining areas make the very most of views across Cherry Lake and the Cherry Lake Reserve.
