H2o Architects has several projects currently under construction, including the St Kilda Apartments and Little Grey St Apartments for HousingFirst.
Almost complete, the St Kilda Apartment development combines new and refurbished heritage buildings to create 50 secure units for at-risk mothers and babies. Also under construction and due for completion early next year, is the Little Grey Street Apartment project in St Kilda.
The Little Grey Street development will transform an existing rooming house into fully self-contained units, creating suitable long-term accommodation for women over 55 years old at risk of homelessness. Our design allows for ageing-in-place, as well as communal indoor and outdoor spaces to encourage socialisation and interaction. Naturally ventilated without air conditioning, the design also achieves 100% adaptive reuse of the existing base building.
Other projects currently underway include the Yarra Ranges Civic Centre Redevelopment and a new gymnasium for McKinnon Secondary College.
St Kilda Apartments nearing completion: The design fosters a strong connection to the adjacent St Kilda Botanical Gardens and is designed to achieve a 4 Star Green Star Rating.
