“The Serrata apartment development is an exemplary contemporary urban solution. The innovative introduction of low rise apartments accessed from the street, along with small-scale retail, transforms the typical high-rise apartment solution”

Serrata apartments in Victoria Harbour have been recognised for excellence in urban design with two awards at the Victorian Architecture Awards 2013.

The 15 level apartment building located at 815 Bourke Street, was developed by Lend Lease and Sekisui House with architects Hayball delivering on the urban design aspects. Hayball received awards in both the Residential Architecture: Multiple Housing, and the Urban Design categories.

The jury for the urban design category noted that: “The Serrata apartment development is an exemplary contemporary urban solution. The innovative introduction of low rise apartments accessed from the street, along with small-scale retail, transforms the typical high-rise apartment solution”.

The panel for the multi-residential category commented that the: “planning and architectural form demonstrated a carefully considered response to the needs of residential occupants and the local community” which could support Serrata “stand as a long- term exemplar for high density city living”.

AAUD is Australia’s premier award for excellence in urban design and is hosted each year by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) and supported by the Australian Institute of Architects, the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, Consult Australia, Green Building Council of Australia, Property Council of Australia and the Urban Design Forum.
