Program:
3 Townhouses

The project consists of 3 boutique townhouses on a small 460m2 corner block in Seddon. Responding to a challenging planning envelope and a demanding brief, the design departs from the traditional two storey composition. It proposes instead a hyper-efficient assembly of spaces not delineated by 'storeys' but a subtle change in levels- resulting in new shared volumes and a diversity of spatial experiences.

Functionally, each town house is concieved of as a sequence of interconnected spaces. One arrives through the front door into the entry hall, down a few steps to the study and guest bedroom or up a few steps to the dining / kitchen area. A few steps up takes one to the living area. Continue stepping up and one encounters the mid-level garden. Futher up,  2 other bedrooms and the roof deck.

The composition responds sensitively to its context. The gentle terracing of the forms negotiate the change in scale from the street to its peaks, creating an unimposing, quietly assured presence on the block
