95 Evans Street Residential Building / MJA Studio

95 Evans St is the first multi-residential development to be completed within a recently up-zoned, transit-oriented precinct, to meet Perth’s infill residential targets. As a result, the project bore much responsibility to set a positive precedent for all future development in the predominantly single residential surrounding area. The site is particularly sensitive as it is situated directly at the transition between two zones – the R15 zone to the east (single, detached residential) and the more intensive R100 zone to the west. With such an abrupt transition burdened upon the site, a well-considered response was essential. It was the intent of both the client and design team to rise to this challenge and respond to these unique aspects of the site responsibly and with as much sensitivity as possible.
