Subject to a height limit due to its proximity to Queen Victoria Market, the height was successfully exceeded through a combination of geometry and similar treatments along the street front. In response to its immediate context, the concept of ‘clustering’ forms was applied to this complex tower. Student accommodation comprises Levels 2-13, followed by 1- and 2- bedroom serviced apartments, and capped by duplex penthouses.
