Project supplied by our Arch Group sister company - Creative Arch.

This development in Point Chevalier addresses the need for new housing opportunities in city-fringe suburbs and takes the lead from its natural environment.

Designed and built using modular construction, the homes took only three months to complete, from foundations, to landing the modules, to interior fit out and site finishings. Two three-bedroom townhouses front the street, while three two-bedroom homes nestle under the pines at the back. Simple yet striking architectural forms reference the surrounding neighbourhood and bring a contemporary twist to the streetscape.

The modules were built complete with bathrooms and floor coverings in the Smart Solution Homes factory in Henderson before being trucked to site. The process lowers the overall embodied carbon of the project. Construction waste is significantly minimised by designing to material sheet sizes, and costs are lowered by less time needed on site.

The development prioritises both public and private space – each unit has its own private outdoor space as well as lines of sight and ease of access into the park. Residents can watch their children play in the park, or entertain under the shelter of the majestic pines.
