Little Bay Apartments
In the context of budget-constrained floor area, apartments are designed to maximise efficiency. The majority of plans provide media areas, minimise circulation space and maximise liveable space. They are positioned to take advantage of prevailing breezes and promote cross ventilation, including single-oriented apartments, which are augmented with solar stacks. Each living space aligns with a generous private open space, which together with garden terraces and communal landscaped areas create amenity for residents, as well as attractive foregrounds to views.
Foyers, dispersed along the buildings’ primary address, are clearly marked by dramatic awning structures and lightboxes featuring interpretive heritage imagery provided by the adjacent Nursing and Medical Museum. They create a site-specific experience for residents and visitors, affirming Prince Henry’s past at its most public interface.
