Boundary Street Apartments are located on the boundary of Paddington and Darlinghurst. Straddling these two iconic inner eastern suburbs, the driving principle was to create a mixed-use building that reflected Darlinghurst's distinctive interwar style but responded to Paddington's village feel.
While the site is within the Darlinghurst suburb adjacent to larger-scale residential and commercial buildings, its street frontages address terraces and the local village diagonally opposite the site. The project's form, scale and materiality directly respond to its immediate urban setting with its hard edges built-to-boundaries, Bowral blue face brickwork, curved corner and horizontal banding of the painted steel referencing the interwar flat buildings, a significant Darlinghurst building typology.
