Project Team: David Barr, Stephen Hicks and Tom Smith
Project Status: Design Development
The LandCorp 'Step Up' competition was won by David Barr Architects through competition in 2017. The scheme is a four-storey, modular design apartment building, featuring innovative approaches to construction and sustainability and a strong focus on flexibility and liveability. The project introduces two firsts for Western Australia – using a prefabricated ‘passive haus’ construction system, which will reduce build time and cost, and delivering the first apartment building in the State with an average9-star NatHERS rating.
