Tony Owen Partners have just completed the Focus Apartments in Parramatta, Sydney.

The steel structure also uses lightweight Hebel floors and walls and is the first of a number of projects being developed by this group. This prototype building explores different techniques to achieve a high quality design at a lower price point. The use of steel resulted in a lower cost and faster construction.
