The Riseley St project is ideally located opposite the shopping mecca of Garden City, Booragoon.  The brief was to incorporate a large portion of commercial space on the ground and first levels to match the built vernacular of surrounding development, as well as providing residential apartments above.

The client requested a consistent façade that spanned across the different building uses.  As such, full-height curtain wall glazing was introduced from ground floor to roof, hiding residential balconies behind strategically placed sash-less windows and horizontal shading fins.  Large concrete boxes articulate and wrap the glazing, with public artwork, required by council, as accent above the shared street foyer.


The street foyer creates an inviting space for reciprocal use by both residential and commercial occupants, ensuring the building’s layout is efficient and maximising the site’s potential.
