Residential typology
The development presents two distinctive building typologies, out of which a number of diverse units result within the approximately 400 units for the 5 storeys + mezzanine envelope. The scheme has been progressed to a level of detail to thoroughly interrogate the Stage 1 Envelope, and confirm its ability to achieve high levels of amenity and the best urban design outcome. Along the Southern Euston Road frontage and to the Western boundary, the buildings are single loaded typology. This is due to the mitigation of traffic noise issues along Euston Road, triggering a North facing aspect to the plaza for each of the units of buildings A, B and C; and a better solar amenity for all the units of the Western wing building H.

The buildings need to have a well organised structure and grid configuration, such that it provides the flexibility to accommodate for all the different changes in units stacking vertically. Townhouses, Retail or Commercial household services are hosted on the Ground Floor and Mezzanine Levels, whilst conventional units with a varied mix is occupying second and third level, and penthouses duplex apartments being at the last 4th storey and its mezzanine. The last accessible floor is therefore the fourth storey, being the lift overruns and the plant rooms embedded within the maximum limit height of 18 m under the LEP.

Access to sunlight for habitable rooms and balconies for the adequate environmental performance within the units have been considered in the disposition of the buildings.
Public art strategy
A range of art opportunities have been considered to be implemented along the publicly accessible routes as well as the communal plaza with retail and commercial edges. The relevance of the art work within its context as well as the integrity of the work is fundamental to create well compelled pieces of art.
