Urban context

A key challenge was designing a solution appropriate to the terraced conservation context while avoiding the roots and canopies of significant trees. The rhythm and height of neighbouring two-storey ‘row houses’ is mirrored in the elevations. Setbacks, height controls, articulated facades and screens help to ensure privacy, complement the streetscape and minimise overshadowing.

Look and feel

Material selection—including glass, natural concrete, terracotta battons, white textured render and charcoal matt Colourbond steel—create a modern and minimal aesthetic.
