Lateral Building Design were engaged to carry out a concept design that included a town planning application as well as construction drawings for our client who were first time developers.
The complexity of the site and its constrained nature brought about by the location of the existing residence and the substantially sized trees, the design response provided a positive contribution to the overall character of the area, satisfying the state policy objectives of urban consolidation and provided an acceptable planning outcome. The development was designed as such that it complimented the amenity of the adjoining properties whilst maintaining appropriate regard to the development potential of the site and the internal amenity of the new dwellings. The strong mix of building materials and finishes provided articulation between levels which offered a softer transition to the highly vegetated context.
Given Lateral Building Design’s success in attaining a planning permit, our clients were eager to move forward with their project and so we continued on with the next stage of providing construction drawings so a building permit could be applied for and realized. Construction of this development has now been completed.
