2015 SYDNEY DESIGN AWARDS – THE PLATFORM APARTMENTS, EVELEIGH
Sitting within the unique historical Carriageworks Precinct, rich in Victorian and industrial history, the newly completed “The Platform” at Eveleigh delivers 88 designer affordable housing apartments, built for essential city workers on lower incomes. Arcadia Landscape Architecture worked with Architectus and CityWest Housing (CWH) to design the landscape for this project, formulating a design that mixes materials of the original era with modern landscape design concepts, to create a new and vibrant place for people to enjoy.
CWH prides itself on creating buildings that are equal to, or better, in design, appearance and quality than other residential flats in the immediate vicinity of their developments. This is to ensure that CWH affordable housing can only ever be seen, by all stakeholders, as quality residential accommodation.
