East Village is a building with a complex program that incorporates supermarket, supporting retail, gym, residential, a car service centre, and parking. The site sits to the eastern edge of Victoria Park, fronting South Dowling Street.
The development comprises two main building components: a podium structure and 4 integrated residential buildings above. The podium building is 4-storeys high while the residential buildings range from an additional 3- to 4-storeys in height.
The overall design concept reconciles the desire to provide clear identities and an appropriate expression for each of the different uses that will also contribute to the strength and clarity of an overall cohesive identity to the development. The hybrid of different uses have been formally expressed in the massing through articulated breaks in the built fabric, and aesthetically through the use of a consistent shadow detail that delineates changes in programme.
On top of the podium is an expansive landscaped courtyard, 6,800sqm in area, that offers residents an array of external recreational spaces.
