Tubbs View + Hamilton Corner
Lindfield, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

The project is located within the grounds of the Sulman Award-winning University of Technology Sydney (UTS) campus in Lindfield. Designed in part for Defence personnel, the development includes 93 apartments and terraces across two precincts.

Hamilton Corner accommodates 23 dwellings within a two storey building, including terraces and single-storey apartments around a communal courtyard. Tubbs View accommodates 70 apartments within a two 4-storey buildings and is located on a sloping site defined by radiating sandstone rubble walls and cuttings. Apartment types include single level, dual aspect apartments and two storey ‘treehouses’ suspended over the sandstone cutting, with all apartments enjoying a unique connection to the bushland setting.

Excellent levels of amenity are afforded via strategies facilitating high levels of daylight, cross ventilation, shading and privacy. A multi-core strategy is used throughout to respond to site contours, reduce internal circulation and increase communal area amenity.

The development has excellent environmental credentials and is one of the first residential developments in NSW to undertake formal EnviroDevelopment accreditation, achieving the highest possible 6 Leaves rating.

A palette of robust natural materials was specified throughout to create a low maintenance development that sits in harmony with the bushland context.
