Project and details

Taylors Hill Townhouses
Type: townhouse development
Architects: Manish, Tse Ying, Chung
Year: 2014 - current
Scale: 610m2
The challenge: The site is a corner lot, however we were unable to propose additional crossovers along the side boundary due to council reserve.
Our solution: Shared driveway for all 3 units are designed along northern boundary (away from street), which allows dwellings to be designed with frontages to both streets. There is an approved large scaled apartment development to our east, while to our north is a single storey dwelling. Our proposal is crucial to act as a threshold between them both; which we have successfully achieved through scale, roof forms and articulation to facades.
