pier street social housing development

iph collaborated with a large Perth firm, Jones Coulter Young to win an open design competition for an 86 unit environmentally sustainable apartment block accommodating single youth, families and the aged. The apartments are sited on a recessed glazed plinth of commercial tenancies and are wrapped one unit deep around three sides of a secluded private garden. A white concrete ribbon folds to frame each side of the eight storey south slab, the three storey eastern wing and the seven story northwest tower. Screened and shuttered balconies provide all units with flexible outdoor living areas. Artwork is integrated into the concrete skin of the building to articulate the dominant facades to the streetscape.
