Altair apartments

Location:
Sydney
Type:
Apartment
Year:
2000
Architect:
Engelen Moore
CO-AP Architects
Project Manager:

Photographer:
Ross Honeysett

Externally the combination of the deeply recessed balconies, horizontal and vertical brises soleil, crisp white concrete structure and blue-black lift cores provide a highly textured and articulated building, which rests atop a podium clad in precast concrete panels with integral cast ventilation slots for the carparking behind.

The main entry lobby and the three loft apartments read as deeply recessed slots cut into this perforated base providing additional life at street level, while the cafe is a lightweight steel and glass pavilion to clearly differentiate it from the podium.


The apartments have been designed to take full advantage of correct orientation and natural cross-ventilation.


Internally the kitchen and bathrooms are designed as free-standing pods within the apartments thus allowing breezeways thorugh the rooms.
