These four townhouses present an innovative approach to the design of medium density housing. Each townhouse has been designed with excellent connections to the outdoors, maximised access to north light, and natural ventilation. Internal spaces allow for flexibility and the varied lifestyles of inhabitants.
The impact of vehicular access and parking, which often dominates developments, has been minimised. This allows for increased landscaping on the street, additional backyard areas, and the creation of internal courtyards.
