The brief was for ‘an outstanding exemplar medium density housing’ Our design was the winning entry in a competition that attracted 65 entries nationally. The upper 5 floors were designed using only cross laminated timber panel structural system providing 25 apartments. The post competition process of design development provided S3 with a great opportunity to research and apply emerging sustainable technologies to this residential building typology. The result was a building designed to achieve the first ever 9 Homestar rating.
