Napier Lane Apartments
Squeezed between a busy intersection and residential houses, this project makes good use of a tight site. The project has been carefully considered and planned into two apartments, one above the other; from the street the building appears as two gable forms, with materials carefully selected to break down the mass, rendering it proportional to residential neighbours. The scale and materiality of the apartment building helps it sit harmoniously within its context, and privacy and outdoor spaces have been well handled to produce apartments that are a delight to inhabit.
