Space the Residence is a two-stage integrated apartment development in Canberra, comprising 164 dwellings in three eight-storey towers, and two three-storey townhouses.
The larger buildings are appropriately scaled for Northbourne Avenue, while the lower townhouses respond to the more intimate character of Forbes Street behind.
The external appearance of the buildings is highly articulated, with the large balconies and other facade elements providing interest and a play of light and shadow. The architectural forms are bold and clearly defined using a monochromatic palette of soft whites. The incorporation of beautifully designed, detailed and fabricated joinery is a significant feature of the interior design.
