HAWKSTONE ST APARTMENT REFURBISHMENT

Project Team: Philip Stejskal, Yang Yang Lee

A project comprising the refurbishment / improvement of a 50 year old apartment building in Cottesloe, necessitated by the presence of concrete cancer in structural components.
The works extend from concrete remediation to compliance upgrades, a new lift shaft & car, balustrade replacement and resurfacing throughout, as well as the addition of a new entrance forecourt and canopy.
Given its proximity to breaking surf, all materials and construction detailing were selected for longevity and resistance to corrosion. A corrosion specialist was engaged to advise in this regard.
Aside from technical requirements, the project called for spatial planning to improve access to and flow around the building.
