Project Description

One Lygon is an eight level apartment building with a single level basement on a 1350m2 site in Brunswick. The development consists of 124 apartments over 7 levels, 91 car spaces (plus car stackers) spread out over 3 levels, 4 ground level commercial tenancies fronting busy Lygon Street and Brunswick Road, a community garden, and a rooftop terrace and lounge.

The building superstructure designed by MacLeod Consulting includes:

  • post-tensioned in-situ floors supported on reinforced concrete blade columns
  • precast concrete stair cores and external walls
  • soldier pile with spray wall retention system
  • lightweight steel and timber roof framing

The feature architectural precast concrete angled facade provided a complex challenge to the design due to the numerous panel shapes, angles and load paths.

Civil design included stormwater drainage and modifications to adjacent streets (with council approval).
