38 Filburn Apartments

The site for this development of 17 apartments sits uniquely at the highest point of the recently established MRA ‘Scarborough Redevelopment Area’. The project stands as an important typology within a new development precinct, taking advantage of the high amenity location.

The client brief called for a simple and rectilinear building with expressed structure, incorporating landscaped elements where possible.

With an awareness of the harsh coastal conditions, our response delivers terracotta planters that punctuate the street elevation. To complement this living foliage at lower levels, laser cut screens carry the organic theme from the entry lobby to the roof terrace, providing solar control by day and a distinctive elegance in the evening.

Apartment planning is oriented to take advantage of expansive ocean views to the south-west, with resident facilities and a generous viewing terrace on Level 2.
