Kibble Street Apartments
The project is an apartment building on the western perimeter of Gosford Town Centre. It is an important site that mediates between the city, railway and nearby President’s Hill to the west. Our approach to the site was to carve out spaces for light and air drawing inspiration from the sandstone cliffs and escarpment in the vicinity of the site. The massing strategy results in a maximisation of the building perimeter and a predominance of corner apartments with good amenity. Material endurance whilst enabling weathering to the facades was a key consideration.
