Five Dock Mixed Use Development
Five Dock, Sydney

This mixed-use development consists of a supermarket, a neighbourhood public library and 102 residential units. The project is in an existing Federation neighbourhood and is of a new scale for the area. The aim was to knit together the local pedestrian networks and open spaces to create a new urban square with a lively, mixed use civic character.

The brick base complements the Federation character of Five Dock, integrating the development with the streetscape. The apartments sit above this brick podium and are arranged around a landscaped courtyard which is open to the north. The ‘L’ shaped form maximises solar access and views towards both Canada Bay and the city skyline.

The project includes a wide range of apartment types including 2 storey maisonettes, terraces, garden apartmentsand two storey penthouses in addition to 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, to create a diverse social mix. Large balconies with glazed balustrades run the full length of each apartment, with both the living areas and bedrooms opening on to them.

The terrace apartments each have their own roof garden. The interiors of the apartments have a warm modern feel with timber flooring throughout the living areas.
