Alphington Townhouses

Winner Multi-Residential Design

Designer: Green Sheep Collective Builder: Elyte Focus P/L
Photographer: Emma Cross Photographer Location: Alphington, VIC

Clear in the design intent, these homes display a high attention to detail externally and internally. The four homes are separated well, and with the careful insertion of internal courtyards, the plans are delineated nicely to capture greater visual space, cross ventilation and separation of programme.

Well designed for passive solar gains, amongst other notable ESD inclusions, the homes will appeal to a diverse group of people.

The sculpted roof forms break up the building and the overall composition of the forms sits very comfortably on the sloping site. Overall an appealing combination and composition of materials that have been skillfully detailed with resolved junctions.
