ABOUT THE PROJECT
Located in the historic suburb of Tighes Hill, the unique multi-purpose site is comprised of 14 townhouses, each featuring three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms accessed from Henry and Unions streets along with 3 commercial premises on Elizabeth St.
The architectural development draws upon the unique materiality, form and character of the Tighes Hill area. The massing, façade proportions and streetscape rhythm reflect the character of the surrounding suburb whilst contemporary materials have been utilised to reference the predominant weatherboard and brickwork of the area.
The differentiation in cladding, vertically proportioning and recessed verandas combine to create a visually interesting façade with an active street front providing passive surveillance to the street and promoting Elizabeth Street as a viable commercial centre on the city fringe.
