CROWS NEST CROWS NEST
A building of religious, commercial and residential uses in a wedge shaped site, the 2 story podium incorporates commercial suites and a new 2 storey church that is surmounted by 6 stories of 73 units.
Each facade responds to the orientation, views and the dynamic of an urban context, while emphasising the individuality of each, breaking down the scale of the overall structure.
The internal core has been designed to promote cross-ventilation through the centre of the building alleviating the need to air-condition the apartments through the creation of a large naturally vented atrium. It also brings natural daylight to the common areas creating a micro environment that assists in cooling the building.
