The Noetic Place residential development will deliver 33 two- and three-bedroom generously scaled boutique apartments in the bayside suburb of Hampton. The Fender Katsalidis designed residences reflects our client’s commitment to community engagement, whilst responding to and respecting the surrounding environment.
The building’s three-storey form and stepped facade are articulated to provide privacy between the enveloping neighbours and respect the street’s horizontal expression. The building will visually present as three individual homes along the Service Street façade, replicating the scale and rhythm of the three houses directly across the road, allowing the apartments to fit contextually into the streetscape.
The external material palette draws inspiration from the Edwardian homes in the area and the beachy tones found in the bayside suburb. A light sandy brick will form the facade, accented with warm metallic articulations and timber battens.
In collaboration with local landscape architect Eckersley, landscape plans include retaining established trees on the site and curating pockets of green spaces with local and native flora for quiet enjoyment. To the south of the site, a communal garden will house a pavilion with kitchenette and a library for all residents to enjoy. Meadering back and forth from the boundary, the fence along Service Street will give landscaped green spaces back to the neighbourhood.
