The design concepts presented in this project were driven by the client’s desire to adopt a new approach to material use and aesthetic for the development. This particular development comprises seven 3-storey townhouses on a residential site in Fairfield. Each apartment’s design aimed to maximise private outdoor spaces due to a limited gross floor area. Emphasis on outdoor spaces allowed generous decks and terraces to supplement the internal areas. Articulation and stepping of the facade allowed for a variety of textures and materials to be used which created interest and opportunity in the architecture.
