Angulated architecture of boutique Albert Park project designed to maximise views for residents

Situated on Albert Park Lake, with sweeping Albert Park and CBD views, Lakeside Apartments is Hickory’s second current project for clients Southlink developments.

Designed by Fender Katsalidis architects, the 12 level Lakeside project comprises 159 apartments as well as a three level basement. Ground floor communal facilities include a resident’s library, gymnasium, lounge/ communal dining room and an outdoor forecourt with pool and landscaped gardens.

The angulated architecture of the buildings is designed to maximise views of Albert Park Lake from each apartment, with the façade highlighted by strong vertical and diagonal elements.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Retention piles, ground anchors and an appropriately engineered and suited footing detail given the high water table level and complex ground conditions
  • Traditional concrete structure incorporating post tensioning and pre-fabricated precast elements (that will double up as façade components)
  • Restrictions with regard to traffic movement around location – locations for site sheds and site management office required within close proximity 

Location: 77 Queens Road, Melbourne
