Rhodes Apartments

Architect: Stanisic Associates
Project Architect: Peter Rush

A large 132 unit apartment development located on former industrial land in Rhodes by Homebush Bay. The project was the third in eleven stages to be developed by Walker Group. After a difficult start, the whole project team was replaced, with Stanisic Associates taking over from the original architects. Peter Rush was designated as project architect and with a team of five proceeded to re document the entire project while construction continued with minimal delay.

The design was complex with a great variety of building forms and apartment layouts. To bring the project back on time and control the construction budget, the structural system was rationalised, precast concrete utilised and apartment designs homogenised. This was achieved without detriment to the original design and enhanced its overall quality.
