Escent introduces a unique design solution to the inner city living fabric. Escent’s concept has been created in response to the dense urban context of the fringe of West End.
The architectural form is a rhythmic and playful balance of proportional elements. Dynamic movement is expressed in the articulated glazed envelope defining the living spaces which contrast the sleek elegant building frame as illustrated by the exposed edges of floor plates and the masonry buttress walls acting as bookends to define elements of the building. A strong contrast in materiality is achieved utilising a masonry base upon which the rhythmic glazed form is placed for the residential levels. Life and activation is evident in the building with well placed generous balconies on the residential levels allowing a strong connection between inside and outside integrating the Rothe Lowman interior design with NRA’s architectural form.
