2024 HIA Australian Townhouse / Villa Development

HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards

Winner: DNA Architects and Bellevue Building Projects

This well-considered urban infill development integrates and positively contributes to the local streetscape. Aimed to connect with the original site, ship-lapped western red cedar was utilised to bridge the old and new developments.

The building features vertical brick, louvred windows and natural timber to create a cohesive aesthetic and warm exterior palette. The development consists of 12 custom-designed three-bedroom terrace-style townhouses oriented north-south along the street frontage. Views of either Haig Park or the large rear common private garden can be seen from each home.

Designed for age in place, each courtyard has direct access to the communal gardens, encouraging a connected community of residents. The design maintains a two-story structure with a low-pitched roof to maintain consistency in the residential area and minimise overshadowing neighbouring properties. Judges noted the high quality of workmanship, thoughtful design, and effective site use.
