Project and details

Laverton Multi Residence
Type: Multi Unit development
Architects: Manish, Kothai, Daniel
Year: 2016 - current
Scale: 1200m2
The challenge: Providing a 6 unit development within a parallelogram shaped site, while giving consideration to easement at rear.
Our solution: The first floor of front units are combined in terms of mass and roof form to appear as one dwelling. As there is increased rear setback requirement, the first floor of rear units are reduced but we managed to accommodate good sized three bedroom units. In overall, the outcome was 4x three bedrooms and 2x two bedrooms double storey units with adequate parking and open spaces.
