Project and details

Forest Hill Multi Residence
Type: Multi Unit development
Architects: Manish, Chung, Kothai
Year: 2015 - current
Scale: 530m2
The challenge: Proposing two dwellings on a smaller lot with a higher private open space requirement, easements that run along two boundaries of subject site. Emphasis is needed for the use and retainment of existing vegetation.
Our solution: We were successful in proposing sizable three and two bedroom units on this lot. A car space allocated for dwelling 1 serves as a good physical separation between the two dwellings. Removal of existing vegetation was kept to a minimum with an introduction of various canopy trees to both private open spaces.
