Completed in February 2015, Encore was architecturally designed to maximise space efficiency. The building’s energy efficient design allows for plenty of natural light.
Centrally located on Roydhouse Street in Subiaco, the development offers residents the very best location in the heart of Subiaco.
Blackburne worked to deliver ‘affordable luxury’ for the Encore project, with compact apartments ensuring a high quality product at competitive prices.
It was negotiated to sell 10 of the apartments to the Department of Housing – at construction cost – as Affordable Housing. They were integrated among the development, with the same finishing specification as all others.
Encore’s energy-saving design achieved environmental performance equivalent to a 4 Star Green Star building. Advanced environmental features included a photovoltaic solar energy system for common power, and a low-energy central hot water heating service.
An innovative mix of diverse housing addressed the needs of changing demographics. Acknowledging the need to evolve with people’s lives, some apartments were designed to be adaptable units, easily modified later for disabled access.
Encore is also home to the award winning architects, Hillam Architects, who relocated into the commercial suites at Encore.
The project achieved the required presales within 10 weeks of its May 2013 launch, with 50 apartments sold in the first two weeks.
