Orbis was tasked with scoping out a gem of a site within a pleasant but changing built up area, for a new High density living concept to cater for new professionals post-university. The site is small, but has superb potential given its surrounding and location. Bringing on board specific architects for this task we were able to bring forward a proposal to house up to 24 young professionals in high quality, yet affordable accommodation. This included using the surrounding eclectic patterns of built development to justify a significant increase in scale, with an architecturally stunning building. Nonetheless as the concept was new, it meant re-inventing the planning wheel somewhat and detailed assessments and negotiations with Council officers to ensure they were comfortable with the proposals.
