The Ashmore Apartments organises three building around two garden courtyards and a new public laneway. A unifying rhythm of facade details that provide shade and privacy are presented to the street edges. Dispersed through the buildings are apartments, a childcare centre and retail spaces. Movement through the site’s public spaces is oriented for connectivity with the village centre. A rich tapestry of city living is encouraged with adjacencies between shops, dwellings, gardens, laneways and streets.Â
