The Commons Hobart
The Commons apartment building in Hobart aims to set a new benchmark for sustainable inner city living in Tasmania. The site, located centrally in Hobart’s CBD, was chosen for its proximity to shops and services and for its northern orientation for solar gain.
The proposed complex includes 30 apartments, two commercial ground floor spaces, a public garden on the corner and a communal roof terrace with a food garden and BBQs. Each apartment will achieve an 8-star energy rating, enjoying north light for several hours each day, healthy & durable raw materials and a private balcony with integrated planter boxes. The generously sized communal rooftop has a studio space for community events, a laundry and clothes drying area, extensive green roof and food-garden beds.
