Designed to be an exemplar in medium density housing, the development prioritises amenity, housing diversity, sustainability and community building for its occupants. The project encompasses, mixed dwelling types, commercial and retail spaces, new public access linkage, shared courtyard and outdoor amenities. The increased activity via entries and commercial use at ground level provide an active frontage to the park and the new laneway/linkage extension. The upper level balconies and terraces balance privacy with passive surveillance, occupants feel connected to the neighborhood and surrounding community.
The diverse dwellings types have dual aspects, with outlooks either to Balfe Park, the courtyard garden or adjacent streets, maximizing natural light and ventilation, resulting in better-quality internal amenity and comfort.
The larger than average size dwellings offer enhanced interior spaces with adaptable living/bedroom areas for changing occupant needs. Similarly, generous outdoor spaces, proximity to public park and laneway linkage, encourage resident interactions and areas to cultivate community connections. The dwelling designs achieve high level compliance in the Livable Housing Australia’s, Livable Design Standards.
