ContextThe 4 storey T-shaped block is located on the corner of Tahi Street and Park Road in Miramar and opens to north facing landscaped gardens.  The site is conveniently located for the elderly with a well serviced bus route nearby and suburban shops and services within walking distance.  Close proximity to the Miramar Town Centre allows the building to act as a visual ‘bookend’, mediating between commercial zone and the surrounding residential area.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanBuilding FormThe insertion of a lift, access stairs and main entrance between the Park and Tahi Street wings have provided design opportunities to reinforce the separation of the two wings, with cladding materials, colour and façade modulation assisting in reducing the scale and integrating it into its surroundings. CirculationSave this picture!© Paul McCredieCirculation radiates efficiently to outdoor terraces at the ends of the balconies.  Circulation routes and stairs are arranged maximising visibility to the common garden area and main entrance to maximise tenant amenity.  North facing alcoves mediate between public breeze ways and providing opportunities for residents to personalise this space.Save this picture!© Paul McCredieUnit Design45m² units are organised into living, sleeping, and service zones.  Bedrooms are orientated to the street with kitchen, service and entry orientated to north facing breeze ways.  This dual orientation provides choice of private setting, aspect for each resident and opportunity for social interaction.
