This design is without doubt a standout bold design response for a street that is crying out for something innovative and different, and would certainly turn the heads of anyone walking or driving past. The clean lines and simple forms give the three-dwelling development interest and real presence without compromising the streetscape built form and massing. The materials used inside and out cleverly interact, working well together to provide a great aesthetic result. The interior design is simple and stylish, but also provides a sense of fun and easy living. The layout adopts good design principles, with the living areas orientated to the north, allowing plenty of light to the living areas. Features such as creating natural light voids to the bathrooms and showers indicate innovative and thoughtful design initiatives, and this is evident throughout the dwellings. Good planning, considered design initiatives, a sense of contemporary style and elegant use of materials, have all contributed to this entry winning the best Multi-Residential Design.
