Mental Health Hostel
The project included the demolition of the existing two storey dwellings No’s 26-29 Stanhope Terrace & proposed construction of a new two storey Mental Health Hostel containing 10 bedrooms & other ancillary accommodation with associated site works. In recognition of the street that largely comprises of residential buildings at domestic scale, the design intention takes the massing, form and scale of the original buildings and provide a new building which is similar with a contemporary aesthetic. The building will be constructed using high levels materials with low maintenance. Brick will be used on all the facades again allowing the building to sit comfortably with the existing urban setting.
