“The ethnic client wanted the best two modern and contemporary dwellings designed on their compact Moray Street, South Melbourne, property,” said Darren Cole-Sinclair of Orbit Solutions. “Each had to have three bedrooms, large open living areas, off street parking, balconies and views of the city. The resultant design reflects the client’s social and cultural needs. It also provides an interesting and dynamic open-plan environment without the usual loss of privacy that flat planar floors can create. With tight council parameters, site constraints and working within the planning legislation, we achieved an imaginative response to our brief by stepping the building at half heights to achieve basement car spaces, interesting living areas with plenty of light and great views back to the city. Our clients are very pleased with the final design and the finished building.”
