03 SYD­NEY BACK TO THE FU­TURE

Identity - - PORTFOLIO -

Sovereign is a devel­op­ment of 23 town houses by award-win­ning ar­chi­tect Tony Owen. The L-shaped prop­er­ties cap­ture sun light and fea­ture cen­tral green court­yards on a lim­ited site, half of which con­tin­ues to be bush­land. The site also has di­rect wa­ter frontage and panoramic views of the Ge­orges River. The town houses are ar­ranged in three ‘stacked’ rows and are de­scribed as re­sem­bling “a me­dieval hill town”. A lim­ited pal­ette of ma­te­ri­als fea­tures white-painted ren­dered ma­sonry with off-form tim­ber-tex­tured con­crete, while tim­ber screens have been added to cre­ate warmth.
