Nunns Road Townhouses

Nunns Road Townhouses

The developer client required two modern townhouses, each approx 180 sqm, with double garages each addressing the double street-front site. To gain market edge, it was necessary to create something different yet appealing to an educated market place. As the townhouses would face different streets and due to an easement along one boundary (and also the desire to capture the north winter sun), we designed individual floor plans for each site, but kept the external facades as similar as possible. Each house is designed around a north facing courtyard and small outdoor entertaining area. A functional open floor plan, double-volume entry spaces and extensive use of glass achieve the feeling of large, light-filled houses. A well balanced yet interesting façade design captures the imagination of prospective purchasers, while the stunning kitchen and utilities areas also impress the most fastidious buyer. This is a fashionable, exciting project – great to look at, great to live in!
