Three level residential building comprising of varying Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) classifications within an apartment typology in suburban Melbourne. Designed to facilitate improved integration of independent living for those with disabilities within the community. The complex provides accommodation for independent living of all degrees of SDA participants, including High Physical SDA with requirement consideration for circulation, access and egress, and support requirements with on-site support and carers.

Abutting 4 separate and unique interfaces (single and medium density developments, park, transport and commercial), the residential proposal takes influence from and provides connection between all surrounding interfaces through high quality architecture, scale transitions and a strong address to each frontage. Strong vertical lines complimented by horizontal forms create residential proportions and signify individual residences with focus to a gentle and considered transition of mass to provide proportional separation between the adjacent building masses.

Building appearance conveys and reflects the varying surrounds with carefully considered use of tactile materials which draws influence and a clearly identified relationship within the surrounding typologies. Blending strong use of brick (residential) vertical forms, horizontal metallic (train line) elements providing assimilation to the adjoining rail corridor, and concrete (commercial carpark), the built form is framed within the landscaped surrounds (park).
