1 Martin Street is a mixed use development close to the heart of Ipswich. The project consists of two residential towers, townhouses and commercial space. The residential towers contain a vast mix of apartment types. The northern tower takes advantages of its orientation and distant views with open planning and cross-ventilation. Overlooking the busy Darling Street the southern tower responds to views of Ipswich City. Underneath the southern tower is a large commercial tenancy which provides an active edge for the development and connects to the public realm of the city.
Fronting quieter Martin Street the building design acknowledges the smaller scale of the neighbourhood. The rhythm and scale of these two-storey buildings are a modern interpretation of the local vernacular architecture. Central to the development is a generous landscaped communal space that defines a new public domain to the city and provides further amenity to the surrounding neighbourhood.
