New Dual Occupancy

Hawthorn East Townhouses #1

This project is a side by side dual occupancy in Hawthorn East.  The brief was for 4 bedrooms, a home office and two living spaces.  The main challenges of this site were how to introduce light into a site that was oriented to the south, and how to deal with the slope running from east to west.

The response was to incorporate an internal courtyard and highlight windows to allow light into the kitchen and living rooms.   In addition, the townhouses were 'stepped' to give each townhouse it's own sense of identity, whilst catering for the slope of the site.
