The Bridgepoint Complex in Canberra is a large apartment
complex that incorporates an intensive, non-trafficable garden in between the
frontage and secondary building line. This achieves the result of having a
barrier from the adjacent spaces and allowing extra natural light to penetrate
the opposing sides. Also having voids in the garden space allow further solar
penetration into the communal area for the floor below. Other than providing
amenity and sunlight for the occupants this garden will help with stormwater
capture, insulation in the immediate surrounding areas.

Features such as this, along with the great location result
in a premium price for the units which is more favourable for developers which
were priced north of $2.2million. The stepped layout of the structure along
with the reduced height of the lakeside building, allows almost all units to
have an unparalleled view of the lake.

The building foundation is man-made and complex
and coordination with the geotechnical engineers were needed to design a stable
concrete foundation. The roofing is made of colorbond sheets which are durable
and weatherproof when designed and installed correctly. To accentuate the
luxurious look and feel of the building, apart from the green roofs and
gardens, the developer have used marble, metalwork, natural timber and bronze
mirrored finished glass to create a premium faƧade.
