The challenge: Number of units to fit within site, provide a well presented frontage to street and grassland.
Our solution: The site is located next to a protected grassland. We have designed for the units to have frontage to the reserve, and have extensive openings along this fa├žade to bring in views and light. Alternate materials and roof form, as well as recesses in walls have been applied to all units to break up the linearity and repetitive nature of terraces. With the use of 3D views and coloured elevations, we were able to put forward our design intentions, which was well received, during a discussion with council planner and relevant departments.
