Napier Street
by Freadman White

Gavin Green

Freadman White has designed a series of apartments in Australia to accommodate various family sizes and living arrangements.

Napier Street is a collection of 14 individual owner-occupied apartments, with diverse dwelling typologies and common areas.

The project engenders a sense of community and social diversity.

Robust materiality, chosen for its organic beauty, encourages tranquil repose. Expressed through a sequence of zones, the palette invites retreat from the vibrant activity of outside city life.

An unfolding sense of arrival takes cues from early modernist living, with each apartment enjoying dual-aspect cross-flow ventilation through a series of open-air pathways.


This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
