Located in in the inner city suburb of St Lucia, “The Edge on Raven” is a
multi-residential development made up of 15 high end units, focused
towards the young professionals living in the area. The design intent was
to provide apartments with a point of difference in the burgeoning market,
by using high end materials and detailing that makes the apartments feel
exclusive and of a higher quality than its neighbours.
Externally, the building steps to soften the bulk and scale to the street, allowing the built form to blend with neighbouring properties and the wider residential setting. In addition to the standard materials of concrete and blockwork common in this building type, “The Edge on Raven” goes beyond the norm using feature timber cladding and wrapped metal volumes to
define entries, while highly detailed screens articulate the facade and provide privacy to the apartments and balconies behind.
A pop of green contrasts with the dark monument cladding and detailing, while lighter materials balance the material palette. These additional features make for an apartment building that engages well with the street, while creating an edgy and unique facade that reflects the target market.
