A Modern Showpiece in Melbourne
With a bold black and white façade that has been sculpted to emulate cascading ribbons, Plus Architecture was enlisted by Developers Blue Earth Group to design The Lantern Apartments building to be a modern showpiece encompassing 84 apartments across 9 levels.
Residents have access to an extensive rooftop recreation area, including moonlight cinema, alfresco dining, teppanyaki grill, barbeque, bar and entertainment area; all encapsulated by a curved slatted pergola that provides protection from the elements all year round.
Positioned in the thriving suburb of Collingwood, The Lantern Apartments are surrounded by the lush green spaces of Fiztroy Gardens and Carlton Gardens, expansive kayaking and cycling tracks along Yarra Boulevard, and just a stones-throw away from Melbourne’s CBD.
Studco’s Engineering Team collaborated with contractors Diangel Constructions to devise the ideal structural solution for the project. Standard steel framing was not a viable solution for the Lantern Apartment Building due to its unique design, so the Studco® Engineering Team delivered a custom external steel framing solution that would best fit the requirements of the structure and support the larger window openings.
Constant collaboration between was essential throughout the project and the Studco Engineering Team was readily available to answer any questions or concerns to ensure Builders Orange Construction were able to complete the framing without complications.
