105-113 Pier St, Altona
This five-level complex comprises 95 stylish apartments along with ground floor retail and car parking. Conceived as two separate concrete structures, the design features a louvered façade which acts as a screening element, and large skillion roofs which bookend the apartment form.
The design is focused around the concept of yin and yang, allowing breathability between the two building forms and taking advantage of naturally occurring sea breezes. In addition, in a first for an apartment development in Altona, two open-air terraces provide communal spaces for the residents.
