North Melbourne, Victoria
This project of 27 townhouses in North Melbourne has been thoughtfully designed to ensure each apartment retained an individual identity while reading as part of a cohesive and vibrant whole. Arranged in three rows across the site, each has its own walk-up street entry with individually coloured front doors. The playful three storey units comprise of a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments with transverse decks on the top floor that break up the building form and maximise the amount of natural light and private open space still within an efficient envelope. The pedestrian and vehicular access has been carefully choreographed to create a user friendly and permeable urban environment.
