Curvaceous and elegant towers meet activated public domain
Altitude provided an opportunity to create 2 buildings comprising 348 apartments & commercial tenants over basement car parking with landscaped through site links and extensive views across the lake.
The low-rise buildings serve to provide an urban edge to the site on Chandler Street and Emu Bank. The ground floor includes flexible use live/work spaces to promote a healthy activation of the public domain. A central landscape podium provides a sheltered focus with a combination of hard and soft landscape works directly accessible for all residents. A public through site link connects upper and lower levels.
The façade treatment was carefully studied and resolved to all four elevations, to ensure an elegant development which is particularly striking in the round.

The tower form is curvaceous and elegant, with a free form plan of apartments located around 2 lift cores. The apartments offer a ranger of size and amenity with large balconies and winter gardens.
This project included a full public domain upgrade and enhancement of Library Walk, connecting Lake Ginninderra with the Belconnen Town Centre.
