The Park HouseAbbotsford VIC Australia
Comprising 530 apartments in two buildings adjacent to the Yarra River in Abbotsford, Park House is the final piece for the wider Yarra Gardens Precinct. Embracing its enviable position and river bank frontage the building is elevated on pilotis, allowing views through the site of the unique natural landscape along the river.
The tower forms have been arranged and sculpted to allow views to the river from the majority of dwellings, unlocking this parcel of land formally occupied by the Melbourne Fire Brigade. SJB has also created a generous public realm incorporating plazas, active retail frontages and pedestrian/bicycle paths.
