The Rex Building

A new apartment building on an urban infill site that draws inspiration from the neighbouring Victorian townhouses.

The challenge of the Rex building was to place a residential building within a very mixed urban context and adjacent to a main road.
Starting with the proportions of neighbouring properties we folded the volume to create oblique views away from the busy road.
    The folded volume of the building references traditional Victorian bays whilst creating a modern building of substantial urban presence.
