We know there was a great deal of consultation undertaken before designing
started – what has been the feedback on everything? The feedback we have
received from potential buyers has been ver y positive. The quality and warmth of the
interiors have been par ticularly well recei ved.
What lessons have you learnt so far? We al ways closely observe the site a nd
design a building that respon ds to the local co ntex t. In this in stan ce we have
learn ed to respect the ‘ Fremantle Doctor’ (so uth-westerly winds). In o rder to
create external spaces that can be used, the apar tmen ts have been oriented
to the n o rth-west a nd the balcon ies have been deeply recessed. This provides
pro tection fo r the outdoo r spa ces an d living ro om windows, so it will be possible
to open them on a hot day, even when the wind picks up.
Where does The Leighton
development stand in terms of other
projects you have worked on? Our
design approach is to use a simple
palette of natu ral materials to create a
calm, light-filled space. O ur buildings
are design ed fo r a relaxed Australian
lifestyle. The Leighto n is ver y mu ch
in keeping with this philosophy. This
development is defi nitely at the high
en d of ou r apa rtment projects.
