This sensitively designed group of four three-level townhouses stands at the end of a quiet residential street bordered by abundant native parkland.
The townhouses are designed to feel natural and secluded with their connection to nature reflected in the design aesthetic and the focus on sustainability. Spacious and open light-filled interiors offer complete privacy together with balcony views over the parklands.
The magnificent river red gums that adjoin the property are echoed in the architecture. The charcoal bark of the tree trunks is referenced in the ribbon of dark metal cladding that wraps the lower portion of buildings. On the pitched forms above, hardwood battens will blend with the mottled greys of the trees as they age naturally over time.
From the outset it was apparent that the successful realization of the architect’s vision depended on the quality of the materials chosen and the craftsmanship of their execution.
Indicative of the innovative design and exemplary construction standards, the project was chosen to be showcased on Channel 7’s ‘Before & After’ series.
