About the project

“The creativity of the project is thought provoking, the houses are interesting and have been carefully crafted.”

Located within a well established residential area, the challenging development site has a sloping topography with a significant level change of six metres from the west site boundary to the east. The development consists of a series of two storey detached and semi-detached housing typologies which reference and are sympathetic to, the surrounding residential context. The stepped topography of the site combined with the variety of pitched roof structures, creates an interesting streetscape experience. This is further enhanced by pockets of landscaping planted with native shrubs and trees, which soften the boundaries of the development.
