High density around a courtyard

429 Swan

The Swan Street apartments are part of the same development as the Farmer Street townhouses. This inventive proposal organises the apartments around an internal courtyard, accessed via open, landscaped walkways. Externally, the two-storey high facade elements reduce the visual height and scale of the street wall, while permeable and operable screens wrapping around corners soften the mass of building.
