Building: Alpha Apartments
Location: Lewisham, Sydney, Australia
Architect: Tony Owen Partners
Completion: 2015

AE Interests: Ecologically sustainable development, hexagonal pod-like façade (manufactured as a single aluminum extrusion). Alpha’s construction was a way to prove contemporary design can be as cost-effective as traditional designs. Top levels exit onto terraces through hexagonal sky units with panoramic views of the surrounding parklands, two-story lounges on every floor foster a sense of community among residents.
