The Macleay Street development consists of eight new townhouses, following the amalgamation of two single dwelling blocks. The aim was to create a reduced scale of development that focuses on individual access and gardens for each townhouse, and on-grade garages with internal access rather than introduction of basements.
The spatial planning of each townhouse focuses on east-west orientation and access to natural light on both sides. A repeated building footprint and structural grid is created, yet within this a range of floor plans is created to allow flexibility of use.
The building form consists of robust brick to frame the key external walls. To articulate this, white timber cladding and articulation elements are introduced to breakdown the building scale. A timeless style is intended, via use of classic symmetry and simple use of materials.
