Residential Subdivision
ENTRY BOULEVARD

ELPIS ESTATE

This prominent Truganina development had a requirement to protect a large area of significant vegetation whilst incorporating new residential subdivision

The Urban design requirements for this site were to give significant place to small to medium density housing. The northern precinct has incorporated a town centre and higher density living, whilst the southern corner had an opportunity to market itself with additional complementary services.

Leakes Road widening has provided essential services for the entire precinct. Generally flat land has allowed for feature adventure park, with elevated contours to provide for destination vistas.

THE MARQ

UNIVERSITY HILL

MEDIUM DENSITY DEVELOPMENT

This narrow parcel of land adjacent to the town centre provided an opportunity to explore different development styles. An architecturally designed group of attached town houses were proposed to overlook re- established wetlands. The subdivision incorporated the design of all parcels, access and an internal traffic plan.

The two storey homes built at The Marq have been designed to maximise space, functionality and overall livability with the open plan living and dining areas designed to capitalise on natural light ensuring energy efficiency.

The home designs address housing affordability with a competitive price point, whilst still offering a high quality range of inclusions and specification. This is to maximise land yield and increase overall density across the site.
