on the outskirts of sydney, australia’s metropolitan area is a recently finished residential building by tony owen partners. drawing influence from cell-like structures found in nature, the ‘alpha lewisham’ housing complex contains 70 units within its modular, pod based design. the structure stands as the principle cornerstone for the mcgill master plan — also conceived by tony owen partners — which will further transform the urban area.

the hexagonal façade creates an environmental screen which dually controls light-intake and frames views to the surrounding areas. standing at a total of seven levels, the interior is composed of apartments, multi-story commons areas, and a select amount of retail and commercial spaces. flats are available in one or two bedrooms on the bottom five floors, with exclusive ‘sky homes’ located on the sixth and seventh. these two to three bedroom dwellings offer expansive roof terraces with panoramic views towards the city and neighboring parklands.
