In a considered response to the design brief for Windsor Park, Jackson Clements Burrows knew they wanted to craft an architectural response that connected the built form to its leafy surrounds.
The enduring form, interpreted as a series of smaller buildings, is separated by pockets of greenery. Vertical breaks along both street interfaces create shadow lines between the architectural form, changing the macro to micro for a more human-scale experience. Sensitive landscaping to the neighbouring reserve evokes an escape from urban life.
Timeless materiality adds a layer of richness and delight to the architecture, with the use of concrete offset by lightweight, metallic panelling. With sustainability a key consideration, the planning of the apartments maximises opportunities for natural daylight, cross-flow ventilation and dual-aspect amenity. A generous internal courtyard offers a sculptural, contemplative space for residents to enjoy, extending the park experience into the building.
