Located in the leafy Inner Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn East, Amara Apartments will comprise 15 apartments that integrate large terraces and roof top gardens onto what was once a single fronted Edwardian terrace house.

The plan, configured as a dumb bell footprint has resulted in a maximum of two apartments per floor each separated by a planted courtyard that is the shared Easterly aspect from the light filled lift lobby. Amara is intentionally planned as a flexible floor plate that enables maximum opportunity in the sales arena by limiting the offer to two apartments per floor or, if more appropriate, facilitating consolidating the floor into one single dwelling. Both options result in no party walls.

The design intent deployed into the buildings edges is to maximize natural ventilation, district views and visual access to the sky.

It is so much easier to knock a building down than it is to build one. Building is a long and involved process of dreaming, planning, scheming, and the wonderfully gritty bit that is actually constructing a physical manifestation of these things, while getting rid of a building sometimes takes no more than a bit of paperwork, some heavy machinery, and the stroke of a pen.
