Medium Density – Low Impact – High Amenity

actinotus

Located in a very leafy area with freestanding homes on large residential blocks, this site presented an opportunity for density done well.

Rather than cramming in as many little dwellings as possible, the developer wanted to family homes that retained the character of the area. The design provides an alternative to the endless rows of white boxes being developed in the surrounding streets.

Each of the 4 homes has direct access to a large double garage with storage, as well as a good sized yard area with plenty of natural light and retained tree canopy.  The dwellings provide house sized amenity for families seeking an alternative to a large block or small townhouse.

From the street the development presents as a contemporary single dwelling. The colour scheme and natural materials highlight the beautiful trees that line this street.

This design demonstrates that medium density can sit comfortably in a residential neighbourhood, without sacrificing the neighbourhood or the amenity of the dwellings.
