Zonie Property Group
Randwick, NSW Australia
Landmark Apartments is a multi-residential development located in Randwick. A high concentration residential structure, these apartments balance a distinct and refined architectural language with an uncompromising lived-in experience.
The complex is composed of four individual buildings housing 117 apartments on a 5,000m² site, located around a large landscaped public square above basement parking.
The design achieves the optimal number of units while respecting the scale of the surrounding built environment and providing for unimpeded scenic views. In addition, roof decks, located along the southern edges of the northern and southern buildings are made possible through a distinct, modern roof. Leisure amenities are also found in all ground floor apartments, with the inclusion of external courtyards and solar access.
This bold complex explores its connection with the surrounding urban environment. The building’s contrasting heights, ranging from three to five storeys, results in a visual hierarchy within the built form that mirrors that of the surrounding streets.
Strong vertical elements, such as party walls, balcony projections and screening, is an active and highly stylised response to the strong visual rhythm created by the neighbouring buildings and lot sizes.
The character of each building is expressed through diverse external and internal colour schemes. These distinct, yet connected palettes then spill out onto the balconies, with each building embracing its own characteristic treatment. Internally, apartments are designed with a mix of hard and soft flooring, modern open plan kitchens and deep balconies. Both single and double storey combinations were designed with a playful collection of internal colour options that offer a diverse range of personalised residential selections.
