Jury citation

Campbell Street cleverly configures a small allotment in Collingwood into two light-filled, three-bedroom vertical dwellings with footprint dimensions of four metres in width and nine metres in length. Each six-level apartment features a basement, a ground-floor garage and a rooftop terrace, plus a light well spanning the height of the property that illuminates each home. The development drew inspiration from residential housing typologies in densely populated international cities, where buildings often take up the entire site footprint or are built to the boundaries. The jury was taken with the clear efficiency in detail planning and resolution of the internal fitout and built external fabric.
