Racecourse Road Apartments

Racecourse Road Apartments

A 12-storey residential tower with basement carparks, designed by award-winning Bailey Ward. This presents the usual challenges of planting under overhangs, in shadows and on slab. The majority of apartments enjoy view onto Royal Park, which represents an important “borrowed landscape” to be capitalised on. All apartments overlook a communal courtyard on Level 1. This offers unique possibilities to create a landscape which is visually attractive from above, day and night. Discreet and random LED lights recessed into the decking will create a magical effect of a night sky. Cascading planting on the northern facade will provide a cooling effect onto the balconies and living areas.
