The Commons is a triple bottom line development that is replicable. It seeks to provide apartments that are spacious, generous, simple, affordable, sustainable and that value add to the community.

At its core, The Commons is about people, not architectural form. The architecture serves as a catalyst for the way people use the building and interact, and the sense of community garnered. Designing to build more with less, giving space and height, light and air, The Commons attempts to give people what they needed not what the marketing agents thought would sell.

Key Initiatives:

  • Social sustainability
  • Affordability
  • Sustainability and implementation of ESD strategies
  • Use of recycled and reclaimed materials
  • Use of low VOC and low embodied energy materials
  • Adopting a form of architectural “de-materialisation” in pursuit of building only what is needed
