01 December 2014 Buyers rush to get a piece of Crimson Hill

Buyers snapped up the latest release at Defence Housing Australia's (DHA) Crimson Hill development, Shout Ridge, on the weekend, with only a few apartments still available.

Shout Ridge delivered 47 stunning architecturally designed one and two-bedroom apartments across two buildings. Contemporary and geometric in form, the apartments feature wave-like balconies that cascade gracefully into the serenity of the surrounding Lane Cove National Park.

Organic, floating curved balconies that step down into a backyard of National Park bushland - the last release of North Shore community Crimson Hill may sound like something from a fairytale, but DHA and award-winning team Architectus have brought the dream to life. 

DHA Managing Director Peter Howman says Shout Ridge delivers a stand-out design, both architecturally and environmentally.

“Shout Ridge is the perfect demonstration of how we’ve combined great design and a leading approach to environmental sustainability,” he says.

One of the most striking features of the Shout Ridge design is the distinctly different facades for both the front and rear of the buildings.

The entrance reveals a strong symmetrical framing around the first three levels of apartments – reflecting robust contemporary Australian architecture and complementing the streetscape and the near-complete Hamilton’s Corner building. At the top level, a soaring, cantilevered, timber-clad roofline (soffit) opens balconies up to northern sun.

The other side of the building presents an elegant curved façade that reads almost as pavilions, and is inspired by the rising rock formations from the valley that drops away revealing long views in the National Park below.

“Shout Ridge effectively has two facades, which lends a distinct architectural point of difference for the whole project,” said Mr Howman.

The diverse selection of one and two-bedroom apartments have generous open plan interiors that combine the well-planned placement of doors and walkways to provide efficient and flexible floorspace. The building orientation means apartments capture breezes for year-round cross-ventilation.

There is also 2.7 metre ceilings with full-height windows and sky-light features in some apartments, maximising natural light and sense of space.

Oversized kitchens with Ilve appliances, glass splashbacks and stone bench tops create the perfect entertaining space. Bedrooms are discreetly located for maximum privacy, and a choice between two colour palettes for the interior design creates a personal touch.
