A UNIQUE LANDMARK FOR A GROWING CITY
The eye catching crowning of the building draws from the pitched rooflines of the surrounding houses, providing a clean and contemporary aesthetic which knits the building comfortably into its context. This architectural language continues on to the west elevation and ensures a visually unique building, both at street level and afar.
The mass of the building is visually broken up on the eastern façade with full height, 4.5m wide curtain wall, exposing the building’s vertical circulation core. Both eastern and western facades utilize a clever combination of continuous operable metal screens, colour and texture to visually break up the building bulk. The screens, apart from creating visual interest, perform multiple practical roles; solar screening, privacy control, providing dimension and enhancing the neighbourhood’s visual amenity.
The building is well connected with the main apartment entry from Campbell Road and convenient secondary entry from Beatson Way to the north providing easy access to local amenities. Both access ways are to be lit-up at night and integrated with the landscape design to create visual interest and increase legibility of the site and its immediate surrounds.
From the moment you enter Summer Gardens, a sense of community and wellbeing is evident in the extensive landscaping, edible gardens and 10-metre pool. Enjoy private use of the front yards with the garden apartments at street level. Spacious balconies are incorporated into all units on the levels above to cater for outdoor living and engagement with the surroundings.
With immaculately manicured gardens filled with native planting and fruit trees, composting and vegetable-growing spaces, the external areas of Summer Gardens complement the interior’s sustainability focus.
Inside, each apartment features operable sun screens, water-efficient showers and tapware, LED lighting and low-emission, environmentally-friendly materials throughout. Roof-mounted solar panels supply the majority of the building’s hot water heating system (which has a gas boost).
Here, you can rest assured in the knowledge that your choices are harmonious with the environment.
6 HOMESTAR RATING
Summer Gardens is registered with the Green Building Council to achieve a 6 Homestar rating. The building uses active and passive solutions of environmental response, such as louvres and operable sun screens.
There are solar panels on the roof to generate sufficient power for the penthouse and supplement energy for the building’s gas hot water heating system. Outside the building, the development looks at landscape design using native planting, fruit trees in the communal area.
Indoor and outdoor lighting to apartments is LED, helping to minimize electricity consumption. Recycling, composting and vegetable growing facilities are provided on site. All apartments include water efficient showers, WCs and tapware as well as low-emission and eco-certified materials for a healthy indoor environment.
The thoughtfully designed residences at Summer Gardens are the epitome of modern living, thanks to the technology integrated into each design. While each apartment offers flexible design options, key features include:
A smart lighting system allowing a variety of scenes to be set at the touch of a button
Energy efficient LED light fittings
