Set on Glen Huntly Road and a short distance to the beach, the design for FABRIC references the nautical relationship of the location in both form and materiality. 

With a focus on texture and crafted materials, the FABRIC apartment building form features a central, curved brick entry threshold, a reflection on an inverted ship hull. This soft gesture breaks the building strategically so the street level becomes much more pedestrian in scale and welcomes foot traffic in between the two brick forms.

Above these textural heavier set lower floors the upper level apartments are intentionally recessive not only in their setbacks but also the materiality and colour. The design aims to create an aesthetic reference to a ship, incorporating a ‘hull’ and ‘upper deck’ and is emphasised with the use of contrasting materials of brick and dark metal with glass.
