Luxton apartments are sited on Bulwer Street in Highgate at the base of the Mount Lawley retail / cappuccino strip. The project consists of 44 apartments over 5 levels with retail tenancies to the street and a roof deck with panoramic city views on the roof. Two extra floors were realised through demonstrating design excellence to the local authority. This was justified through bi-parting building and subtracting volumes from the east and west, to maximise cross ventilation and access to northern light.
Stuart green, a local artist was engaged to work collaboratively with MJA to design the rear car park screening. The installation titled ‘strato’ creates a dynamic façade overlooking the council car park and is back lit at night creating interest visible from the laneway and nearby Beaufort street
