Scott Carver have been announced by Avid Property as the winners of a selected design competition for a landmark site in Surry Hills.
The site which was formerly a petrol station is situated at the corner of Flinders St and Short Street within 100m of the St Margaret’s Hospital redevelopment site. Inspired by the urban village character and narrow dimensions of the site the innovative design includes 33 distinctive terrace houses and apartments together with ground level retail and community space.
Studio home office apartments contribute to the activation of the surrounding laneways and the upper level homes are provided with roof gardens that look over the revered Mardi Gras Parade route and towards Moore Park. All dwellings are provided with excellent levels of solar access, daylighting and cross ventilation and connect to a screened street courtyard, also open to the public.
Scott Carver were successful in winning the competition against BKH and Tzannes Architects.
