This humble dual
occupancy project for Women’s Property Initiatives replaces a 3-bedroom
suburban villa with two courtyard homes, one 3-bedroom and one 2-bedroom.
The site master-planning
resolves the site constraints of two vehicle crossovers, train noise from the
rail reserve along the eastern boundary and encroachment of neighbouring
buildings, while optimising northern orientation to internal and external
Individuality for each
home is achieved formally through expressive roof forms and is reinforced
through the change of brick colour to each home’s façade.
