NOVA-  (119 apartments)  http://www.novaapartments.com.au/ 
 
Nova is the second phase of Victoria Park stage 2 and comprises 114 apartment units configured around two courtyards.
The site is organized with robust, slim-line, bar forms flanking the east and west boundaries. Letterbox-like openings
mark balcony spaces behind and are animated with sunscreens that control the sun and thermal comfort. Overscaled
projecting timber-clad maisonette volumes punctuate the elevation and relate to the broad dimension of Joynton Park
to the east. In response to Tote Park to the west, a series of maisonettes on the upper levels project from the wall plane
and are rotated towards the north and the city views.

A high level of amenity was achieved as the predominant apartment type is dual aspect on either one or two levels,
giving opportunity for cross ventilation, and the orientation of primary living, bedroom and terrace areas is towards one
of the two parks.
Nova was completed in February 2003.
