Harbord NSW, 2013
The Freshwater is a perfect balance between city sophistication and the lifestyle of the beach.
Sitting on a key corner in the heart of the village, The Freshwater presents a rhythmic urban edge to the street. The footpath is activated with smaller shop frontages, a central arcade and a residential lobby.
A porous circulation system of naturally ventilated breezeways anchor a generous landscaped light court. Every opportunity for sunshine, views and fresh air has been maximised. Although the site is south facing we have achieved solar gain for 87% of the apartments, well over the SEPP 65 requirement.
