Two blocks in the popular suburb Lyons were consolidated to facilitate this boutique development comprising eight modern townhouses. The brief required the development to be commercially viable while offering spaciousness and high quality throughout which would appeal to live-in purchasers as well as discerning investors.
The development comprises 8 units including 6x2 bed units, 1x3bed unit and 1x1bed unit. All the Units have excellent solar access with the Living Rooms to the first floor units also benefiting from raked ceilings and north facing highlight windows. The upper level balconies are generously proportioned to facilitate outdoor entertaining.
The concept is conceived as a series of masonry portals enclosing the sliding doors separated by two “tower” like structures housing the stairwells. A series of  skillion roofs with wide eaves floating above the building and projecting horizontal shade structures add to the buildings dynamics.
The 3D articulation is further emphasized by the use of various materials with a combination of rendered and rock face masonry, lightweight cladding and timber screens.
