Architecture Interior Design
This Lane Cove apartment development represents a quiet retreat from the noise and bustle of Burns Bay Road and responds intelligently to the richness, complexity and diversity of the Australian lifestyle. As a benchmark residential development it delivers a range of well-appointed, spacious and light-filled apartments within a landscape that protects privacy, while capturing breathtaking views to the water and city. The long and thin site brought with it the challenge of how address both the view to the south, while optimising solar access from the north. This is resolved with an innovative apartment plan that includes a leafy mews entry, connecting east to west and providing a garden-esque environment for entry lobbies. DKO’s rigorous testing of planning models and skill with diverse typologies manifests here in two carefully considered seven-storey buildings. Each of these contains 85 one, two and three bedroom apartments, with north-facing layouts, high ceilings and deep balconies, delivering efficient site strategy, while producing interiors with generous volumes and a sense of light-filled openness.
