Our design inspiration hearkened back to the similar techniques used in industrial brick making, for this, Tectvs drew on the local heritage of the former ‘red brick’ Clipsal factory. Stacking, stepping, and framing were key design elements as was incorporating bold geometries into the materiality and form of the façade. The use of black steel; reclaimed red brick, and glass windows frame the building, its courtyard and lobby, and provide a focal point for a local artist masterpiece. Residents appreciate the connectivity between the architecture, interior, and landscape with a central courtyard providing a living, green oasis. The integrated timber seating encourages residents to meet, relax, and take full advantage of their surroundings.
Simple but beautiful architecture.
