The Dominion residential development located on the heritage site of Caritas on Forbes Street, Darlinghurst contains 110 residential apartments, commercial areas and 142 car parking spaces.
The residential units are housed in both the two heritage buildings and in the new three buildings of Bourke, Burton and Forbes. The development is built around a significant heritage garden facing Forbes Street, which provides the main residential lobby access points to the three new buildings.
The residential units are designed to maximise frontage and aspect; affording panoramic city and district views.The project has an integrated art and heritage interpretation element which is an integral part of the architectural expression.
The new communal and private garden spaces respect the existing heritage buildings and site character by providing consistency in materials while expressing a modern differentiation.
The materials palette of the buildings focuses on rich, natural materials of sandstone, glass, zinc and timber. Operable louvre and facade shading systems provide maximum flexibility to the residents and a benchmark sustainable response.
