The project consists of 19 residential units in total with 10 attached houses and 9 apartments. The hinterland site contained protected vegetation along part of the street frontage and at the of the design the area was was relatively undeveloped and semi rural. MWA’s proposal was to break the residential component into two parts being a series of two storey terrace houses along the street frontage with a five storey apartment block to the rear. By placing the small scale terrace houses to the street frontage MWA were able to minimise the bulk of the building and better sit the proposal within its context and allow the protected vegetation to remain a primary feature of the streetscape. The space encapsulated between the terrace houses and the apartment block became an intimate landscaped square for residents.
