Address: 37 Mount Street, West Perth
Project Value: $12.3 million
Estimated Completion Date: April, 2018
Architect: Baltinas Architecture and Cameron Chisholm Nicol
PACT Construction has teamed up with Baltinas Architecture and Cameron Chisholm Nicol to deliver a landmark private residential project – Camilla Residences.
Featuring 19 apartments and two exclusive penthouses over nine levels in a coveted Mount Street location, PACT will draw on its highly successful whole-of-project approach to achieve this outstanding inner city architectural statement. Once completed, the Camilla Residences development will deliver Perth a striking, innovative building located on the edge of Kings Park, with breathtaking views over the city foreshore and famous Swan River.
The building’s façade is designed to emanate an alluring feminine charm, with sensual metallic sheer curtain drapes across the glass façade creating an ever-changing pattern of light and shade. Inside, each apartment’s light-filled spaces come to life with timeless finishes, high quality materials and clever innovations, while generously proportioned balconies have been designed around a winter garden concept, with enclosed glazing allowing year-long enjoyment.
Standing the Camilla Residences development apart is its innovative energy efficiency design, with responsible, sustainable development principles guiding the selection of each and every component of the building.
Clever solar passive building orientation and engineering techniques lead to clever cross-flow ventilation, allowing residents to reduce their reliance on energy-draining mechanical climate control. To reduce heat loss and minimise noise, windows will feature heavy-duty performance glazing. Low environmental-impact materials are used wherever possible, including low VOC or zero emission materials, bio paints, and low allergenic polyester insulation.
Further enhancing the project’s strong eco credentials are the photovoltaic panels that generate power for the common areas, supported by high-efficiency appliances, taps, showerheads, toilets, inverter air-conditioning technology and LED lighting. Meanwhile, rainwater is fed from the roof into harvesting tanks to irrigate the communal gardens, reducing overall strata costs and lowering the building’s carbon footprint.
With construction expected to take 74 weeks, PACT looks forward to the exciting challenge of delivering this elegant, modernist landmark building in signature style – on time, and on budget.
