Cirqua Apartments creates a new living environment for East Ivanhoe. The project involves the consolidation of 2 neighbouring properties into a single block for a new multi-residential development.

The project site has been the subject of several unsuccessful planning applications in the past, and is affected by a complex range of planning policies and physical constraints. The design comprises 44 dwellings on a steeply sloping site, with a range of sizes and types on offer.

The project is designed to carefully consider accessibility and passive environmental performance. All apartment bedrooms and living areas have direct access to natural light and ventilation, and significant landscaped areas have been integrated into the design to provide a high quality garden setting.

The building facades are highly articulated to reduce the overall building’s mass. The design draws on the materiality and expression of local, historical housing types that are reinterpreted in a contemporary manner.
