Adanac Park was a scheme whereby we inherited the design therefore the first task we had was to change the layouts to make them work for our Clients’ needs which meant changes to the external façade as well as internal alterations. A mixed palette of traditional materials is used across both buildings to provide variety to the buildings.

Brick, render mixed with fibre cement cladding and glass are used to dress the elevations in a contemporary manor to both soften the previous monolithic approach. Both buildings are ‘U’ shaped, and both entrances face the car park to provide a legible development. A shared service area is located in between both entrances. The area around both buildings is given over to garden space for residents. Tree planting is then continued around the site to soften the appearance of the development, with large native and ornamental trees around the boundary of the car park and large natural boundary trees between the application site and the new residential development to the west.

Adanac Park is due to complete early 2024.
