As an evolution on an earlier concept for an apartment at Mosman St, (Mosman Apartment 2) focusing on single level living,  Escarpa is structured around a central (private) courtyard. The apartments embody the qualities we felt were often absent from living in units: privacy, direct access to private gardens, sun-drenched internal and external rooms, a sense of space, separate street entrances. The design welcomes natural light through skylights and roofs which tilt up to catch the sun as it moves around the building. Internally, joinery ‘walls’ discretely organise space.
