Project and details

Wheelers Hill Multi Residence
Type: Multi unit development
Architects: Manish, Chung, Jeet, Daniel
Year: 2015 – current
Scale: 650m2
The challenge: Designing buildings that are appealing on both streetscapes as site is on a corner block.
Our solution: Each streetscape is addressed by the use of contemporary gable faces in different directions to as presentation to both streets. For Dwelling 1, we have included an opening within porch canopy which allows different sun angles being cast into the living area at different times of the year, without creating too much glare in unwanted spaces. This proposal was a success at council level while providing two comfortably sized 3 bedroom dwellings, both with an additional lounge and study.
