Pindan’s North One – Subi Centro has been announced as a winner in the Medium Density Category of the 2015 UDIA WA Awards for Excellence.
Pindan’s North One development in Subiaco is located in a high profile landmark location and has been recognized as a strong example of a high quality built form and architectural excellence.
The mixed-used development was completed in late 2014, with first residents moving in prior to Christmas. It comprises 2 basement level carparks, 17 commercial units on the ground level and 88 apartments over 4 floors.
Senior Project Manager for Pindan, Mr Tim Cummins, said of the 88 apartments a high proportion of one bedroom layouts were included, a conscious decision to meet the growing appetite for a price sensitive product with immediate access to transport, shops, cafes and restaurants.
“With 60% of the apartments on offer at North One comprising one bedroom, a lot of time was spent on the design of common facilities which could be used by both those living in the apartments as well as commercial tenants,” he said.
Communal facilities at North One include a ‘master chef’ kitchen, known as “The Loggia”, and an open rooftop terrace complete with BBQs, a cinema, resident’s lounge, gym and steam room.
The focus on high quality communal space was purposeful and is unique when compared many other similar developments. “Our emphasis at North One was on creating communal spaces which are well used – places where residents and commercial tenants can entertain clients and friends in an excellent facility – and our rooftop is a great example of that,” Mr Cummins said.
All apartments also feature a high quality fit out, previously unheard of for apartments at an entry level pricing structure, which Mr Cummins said was essential in ensuring the internal design of the building matched the external architecture.
“Architecturally, the external façade with its angular forms of the building on the north side and its patterned brick blades on the south are contemporary and striking, so it was essential the internal fitout has the same wow factor.” Tim Cummins, Senior Project Manager, Pindan Developments
