81 Foveaux StreetSurry Hills NSW Australia
Foveaux Apartments is a new residential building in the heart of Surry Hills. The former site of the Legion Cabs depot has created an opportunity for vibrant inner city living. North facing, the building has views to the city skyline and an extensive shared roof garden. SJB were the lead architects for the project and collaborated with BKH, who designed the interiors for the 53 apartments. The project includes a mix of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments, all with generous outdoor amenity and basement storage. Glazed retail spaces face Foveaux Street, with the building entries articulated by five storey vertical screened recesses.
The building is designed in off form concrete, with crisp white painted masonry and warm timber detailing.
The bedrooms have deep window reveals and the covered balconies have foliage growing over the edges.
The sculptural street awning is formed in steel, and will incorporate a public art piece to the underside by Sydney artist Mika Utzon Popov, engaging with people passing by.
