27 Leeds Street, Rhodes

Site area: 10,955m2

This property has been granted a Site Compatibility Certificate under the provisions of SEPP (Affordable Rental Housing). The Certificate confirms the site’s capacity for a development of 500 apartments, 50% of which is affordable housing.

The two iconic forms are designed to envelop the user with a sense of arrival, to develop a language of celebration and to establish the area as a gateway into Rhodes.

The concept plan comprises 5 buildings surrounding a central landscaped space leading to a foreshore parkland and a new bicycle connection to the foreshore reserve.

The facade mimics the exchange of movement of the surrounding waters, offering visual excitement and diversity for the eye, whilst acting as an intelligent sun shading device and hidden structural design system.

27 Leeds Street is another example of how a+ design group continue to push the boundaries and think outside the box.
