The project was for the development of a prestigious corner block into three units with some basement carparking. The proposal has been tie the disparate streetscape with active facades that provide passive surveillance and increase interaction within the front yards. The materials and finishes selected play up on the existing post war built form and leafy neighborhood character. The design takes advantage of the north facing orientation by focusing on the basic amenity of light, solar penetration, landscaping and energy efficiency. The design takes advantage of thermal chimneys, passive solar orientation and vegetation as solar shading devices.
