Queen St. Residence

Design Features:
  • The Queen St. Residence is designed to have one centralized
    core, 2 elevators and a U-shaped staircase behind with min.
    9.0m exit doorsin each side;
  • Residential units fit also within the width of the perimeter ring
    to allow for free easy access at different points. In our design
    the circulation is in the centre with residential units radiating
    from it. This is primarily due to the small size of the property
    in a high density urban context.
  • The entire building faces the sun path to gain as much sunlight
    as possible for all the units. The residential units are in different
    shapes with adjoining terrances and balconies to provide the
    residents with outdoor spaces. The odd shapes of the units will
    be attractive to thepeople in this community keeping the artistic
    ambiance of the space.
