Dlr Architects have designed a new series of apartment buildings in Australia, as part of a new architecture style.
The two-storey buildings feature large open spaces, open balconies and open terraces, with a large central courtyard.
It’s the latest in the company’s efforts to create an Australian style that is “uniquely Australian”, said Dlr chief executive and managing director Ben Meehan.
The buildings are designed by the architectural firm Dlr, with design work completed in collaboration with the Victorian State Library.
The studio says its aim is to produce “an Australian style of architecture that reflects our cultural heritage and the diversity of our population”.
The first three apartments are currently being built in Sydney’s CBD, with the last one to open in Melbourne’s CBD in early 2021.
In a statement, Dlr said the new apartments would feature a mix of modern and traditional architectural elements, and that they would provide a blend between a home and an office.
“The first apartments will be built on the site of the old Lighthouse, and will be open to the public,” the statement said.
“A second series of apartments will follow in 2019 and 2020, each with a new open-plan design and an integrated retail and office design.”
The studios have been designed by architect Ben Moehan.

“This is a huge opportunity for us to be able to create a unique and connected space that combines the best of our design and construction,” Mr Meegan said.
He said the first of the new buildings was due to open later this year.
“We’re really excited about building the Dlr studios, and are very much looking forward to the next phase of our redevelopment.”
“It’s a new era for Dlr and we can’t wait to see how this new Dlb Studio looks on the ground.”
