Four townhouses were created on a large residential corner block in Turner. The purpose of the design was to offer large, high amenity townhouses. A key goal was to maintain as much existing landscape as possible, and preserve the existing street character with a sympathetic design outcome.
The design maximises the north orientation and leafy frontages of the street, while utilising the existing driveway for on-grade garages at the south. Each of the end townhouses has a side courtyard framed by the building form, while the two central townhouses have a central upper level outdoor terrace. This connects to an internal double height void to deliver natural light to internal areas.
Each townhouse is double storey, with a circulation spine running the length of the building. Living and outdoor areas spill off this. Natural light and cross ventilation is incorporated to ensure a connection to the outdoors is present at all parts of the building.
