Kingston Foreshore, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia
Located on the waterfront in the new Canberra precinct of Kingston Foreshore, Atelier adds a unique and distinctive character to the emerging district.
Designed as a 4-storey perimeter block, with two, 6-storey corner elements, the building form maximises water views and protects a communal central landscape. Bates Smart were able to limit excavation while increasing salable floor space by creating a split level, semi-basement set behind the ground floor units and retail space.
A checkerboard of vertical louvres and inset balconies provide solar protection and ensure privacy, while full height glazing connects residents to the wider context. Warm tones and fine grain texture in the form of bagged brick, timber and bronze metal cladding create a human residential scale, setting this building apart.
Bates Smart’s holistic approach to the interior design brings the external textures and tones inside, setting a new standard of residential quality in the area.
