Wicks Place engages with and enhances its context, with direct activation to Wicks Park and a range of boutique retail and commercial spaces complementing the increasing activity along Victoria Road.
The design connects the park with both the podium courtyard and the ground level retail stores opening out to embrace the open green spaces. New laneways and pedestrian pathways connect through to nearby streets and the local neighbourhood.
Apartments are designed for entertaining, with considered floorplans that maximise light, space and storage, generous living areas and bespoke interiors. They also provide expansive views of the surrounding area from Wicks Park to the Sydney CBD.
The new community is part of a wider revitalisation of the area, which will create a vibrant connection between the established village centres of King Street Newtown, Enmore, and Marrickville Road.
Wicks Place is about celebrating all the great things about Marrickville. It's about creating a new place where residents and community want to be.
The materiality of Wicks Place is inspired by the industrial and brick warehouse character of the area with the use of face bricks with expressed patterning, metal clad roof elements and off-form concrete providing a robust but textural palette of warm, earthy tones.
