Description: this two story apartment is an exercise in smallness.  The site is to the rear of a two storey, heritage listed, commercial office.  The apartment takes occupation of a prior shed and car park space and takes form as a remnant area described by existing driveway traffic.  The architectural language of unit masonry, from the immediate environs, is countered with a rich investigation in plywood.  Occupation delight demonstrates the excellent amenity and a marketable success.
