171B BOTANY ROAD/DHA Waterloo
GroupGSA have designed a rich, engaging, dynamic and diverse development with architectural character.
The development provides a response to the evolving demographic of Waterloo, catering for diversity and inner city living whilst creating opportunities locally. It also provides a mix of residential opportunities which responds to growing housing demands for the Defence Force and private residents.
The uniﬁ ed resolution of urban elements converging within the development – private/public space, activation opportunities, legible streetscapes and built form, high amenity and sustainable solutions deﬁnes the sense of place within the site and the combination of traditional and contemporary façade treatments address the public domain. Conveniently located with a dual frontage, a through link within the site provides easy resident access and an opportunity to change up the architectural character of the building which is transitional between Botany Road and Cope Street.
The architectural form and the ﬂoor plan conﬁguration of the building responds to key inﬂuences; the aspect and views afforded, and the solar orientation. The upper ﬂoors provide key views toward the local district, parks and CBD.
