Finely Crafted Luxury Living on the Swan River that references its past
The Terraces exists as a collective of seven stacked luxury villas consisting of 4 luxury apartments & 3 serviced apartments which reference the material qualities of the former red brick character home (c.1960) on the site by Architects Powell Cameron and Chisholm. The design re-imagines the classic South Perth brick villa and garden.
Talk to Simon Saint about Residential
The articulation of the built-form has a relationship with both the urban street corner and the Swan River in a holistic way, defined as a unique architectural gem different to others along the waterfront. A single floor large pavilion-like Penthouse situated at the top is set back and surrounded by lush garden terraces. A statement in Architecture integrated with greenery that celebrates its historical past and redefines its neighbourhood context.. The ground floor is comprised of a concrete plinth that has been split mid-way between the food and beverage tenancy and parking area to reveal a Secret Garden that welcomes residents and visitors into the lobby. During the day, there is a sense of play with texture and shadow as the sun tracks across the sky. At night the building glows like a lantern with layers of light filtering through masonry breezeways. The City of South Perth is an inner southern suburbs of the Western Australian capital city of Perth about 4 kilometres south of Perth’s central business district. The area broadly forms a peninsula with over four kilometres of north facing foreshore to the City of Perth. It is a significant central Perth Waters portion of the Swan Canning Riverpark. The project site is situated in close proximity to Mends street jetty precinct of the foreshore.
