IMA Elwood Apartments

Project: Elwood Apartments

Client: Interlandi Mantesso Architects

Category: Multi-residential


This project in the heart of the Port Phillip City Council was required to meet the stringent ESD performance levels required by the Council. A detailed Town Planning Assessment process (STEPS) is the first step which assesses the building thermal performance, as well as heating and cooling, water use and materials selection.

At the Building Permit Stage, the project was required to meet the Building Code of Australia’s 5 Star energy requirement (as applicable to all dwellings). This was achieved by designing appropriate glazing with good insulation levels as well as some creative, functional western shading devices.
