Brief Description

Papworth Davies design of the main roof terrace features a courtyard nestled among surrounding gardens of extensive plantings of succulents to create a unique and vivid external space with stunning views of the city skyline.

The Atira Apartments in North Melbourne were designed to not only provide accommodation for students close to Melbourne University, the city and RMIT but also to provide a range of different external spaces for residents across the multiple levels of the two towers. Built over the site of the former Turf Club Hotel on the corner of Peel Street and Flemington Road, the apartments retained the old façade of the former pub as well as utilising the roof as a landscaped terrace.

Papworth Davies design of the main roof terrace features a courtyard nestled among surrounding gardens of extensive plantings of succulents to create a unique and vivid external space with stunning views of the city skyline. Other more intimate external courtyards on lower levels were designed by bespoke-designed black powdercoated steel planters that complement the architecture of the apartment towers’ façade.
