Foamcrest Apartments by Richard Cole Architecture

Foamcrest Apartments is a project designed by Richard Cole Architecture. On a difficult triangular site in the coastal suburb of Newport on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Foamcrest Apartments is a form generated from the unique site. A composition of glazed bricks, off form concrete and sandstone, materials selected for their durability and appropriateness for the ocean side location, the seven apartments are 100% adaptable and differentiated by unique plans. With two prominent street fronts and a central lobby that is open to the sky, the design carefully balances solar access, privacy and outlook. The form emphasises a low profiled horizontality that is generally well below the height limit. The character of the building provides a fresh and contemporary contribution to the locality.
