Dendenong Student Housing is a revitalise Dandenong project. Responding to the redevelop plan of Dendenong city, the project was to incorporate retail, commercial, recreational and accomodation in one city block. It was also to provide outdoor activity and entertainment space for student from Victoria University in proximity. It was also conceived with a sequence of public to private space.
The proposal embeded itself to the geological and culture context. With a new built public library to the north, it was to embrace the proposing urban axis through the heart of the city, connecting the popularized urban landscape. A laneway generated from the topographical pattern bridged the very southeast corner to the top of the site, creating urban moments for residents, tourists and student to hangaround. Being away from the ground floor public area, the rooftop gathering space provide semi-public campus like square for community and school events.
