A trio of buildings around a lush landscaped space
To create a third residential development for the Woden Green precinct, which will act important arrival point and gateway from the Woden Green Town Centre. Desiring the ability to adapt to a unique market meant testing of new typologies and apartment layouts was imperative. While budgetary limitations resulted in a design approach based on modularisation, which afforded the project with a clean and distinct style and material palette.
After the success of ‘Altitude’ in Belconnen, Scott Carver was engaged by Hindmarsh to deliver the third residential development for the Woden Green precinct. Using ‘Altitude’ as the benchmark, the project was an example of collaborative workshops designed to formulate a distinct framework that could be applied to every stage of the project. Idalia is named after the Australian National Park of the same name - an apt name for a place to reside bringing sunshine, rolling green parks and gardens providing tranquillity for an inspired lifestyle.
The trio of buildings will frame an open central courtyard – a strategic response to the green open spaces that populate Woden. Acting as the arrival point, Idalia is the gateway from the Woden Town Centre into the Woden Green precinct, successfully connected by the floodway pedestrian overpass, which resulted in the edges of the site forming an important frontage. The common landscaping seamlessly threads the pedestrian and cycle network together, connecting to the future stages of the precinct.
To act as an arrival point and gateway to the town centre. The three Idalia buildings ring around a common garden landscape area for the quiet enjoyment and visual relief of the occupants. Apartments are impeccably presented, with sun-lit living spaces, stone surfaces, sophisticated designer appliances and plush carpeting featured throughout.
The Idalia development comprises three low-rise buildings and includes a mix of 27 one-bedroom and 72 two-bedroom configurations
