The distinct façade is defined by textures and curves that take inspiration from the streetscape and the unique features of nearby heritage homes.
A variety of considered structures and materials make up a core part of Piper’s architecture, including timber battens, aluminium louvres and natural and raw elements designed to weather over time.
Local vegetation has also acted as an inspiration for a palette that is sophisticated and relaxing throughout.
Landscaping at the front is important to the public realm as an extension of the footpath. The gardens, together with the continuation of natural materials inside the lobby and entrance are key elements that imbue a sense of luxury upon arrival.
Gentle textures and flowing lines define the interiors of the Piper Residences. Spaces feature a collection of natural tones and luxurious finishes. Beyond the timber floorboards that ground the homes, light flows in through large windows.
Floor plans are generous with apartments designed to bring a great sense of unity to the homes. Each apartment has a floor plan that allows for the residents to ‘zone’ their spaces and create versatility for when they have guests. It also allows for seamless connections between the spaces, avoiding corridors and creating a true open feeling.
Centred on open plan design, the spacious integration of the kitchen, dining and living areas promotes social interaction within the residences.
All apartments face north and enjoy a great view of the city with floor-to-ceiling windows to ensure plenty of light gets in. Sun protection is achieved through screens and canopies which also add a considerable level of privacy.
Terraces maintain interaction with Linacre Road while providing a sense of openness. Outdoor aspects accompany each residence, providing opportunities to entertain outside while maintaining a connection with the garden and street.
