Kooyong : Armadale
Currently under construction, this development contains six new generously sized townhouses, each with a basement double garage and private internal lift. Carefully sited to maintain the appearance of a single dwelling to the street, the townhouses have been designed to maximise north orientation and cross ventilation throughout.
The material palette, articulation and detail for the proposed building was generated with a particular reference to both the local Arts and Crafts architectural expression as well more contemporary precedents from Robin Boyd and Roy Grounds.
Period materials and articulation are not faithfully reproduced but instead interpreted to form a visual relationship with the existing building fabric but simultaneously represent the contemporary nature of the building. Deep eaves are provided for the north and west facing windows which provide solar protection, and shadows and depth to the facades.
