21 Apartments at Lidcombe, Development Application © Randles Hill Straatveit

This medium scale project for an area in transition can be characterised as an assemblage of three principal elements: a grid of balconies addressing north; a screen wall – suspended above the ground plane – wrapping around the southern and eastern facades; and a ‘tower’ of balconies addressing the street junction opposite.
The project comprises commercial units at ground, cross ventilated single level apartments and a communal roof terrace.
