The Alpha by Tony Owen Partners is due to start construction in July. Located in Lewisham on the fringe of the Sydney city centre, the Alpha will form the cornerstone of the new McGill master plan prepared by Tony Owen Partners. Alpha’s distinctive design and style which sets it apart from other developments. Its hexagonal pod-like façade creates an environmental screen which controls light and frames the views, allowing maximum exposure as well as privacy. The seven storey building encompasses a selection of one bedroom and two bedroom apartments and retail/commercial spaces. The top levels contain two and three bedroom two storey ‘skyhomes’ with hexagonal metal pods leading onto expansive roof terraces with panoramic views towards the city and surrounding parklands.
Almost all apartments come with Alpha’s bold lobbies incorporate profiled concrete walls and profiled coloured glass. Each level of the building has a two-storey communal lounge area to encourage interaction between residents. Alpha’s unique interiors match the progressive concepts of the architecture.
The interiors use different timbers to create a fresh, modern feel with bright finishes, and polished floorboards with open kitchens and coloured glass.
