Bateman's Bay Multi Residential
Facing east to the Pacific Ocean, this eight-townhouse development showcases modern coastal townhouse design and is at the approval stage. The corner siting dictated a double frontage to the multi-residential development, which backs on to a reserve and manages overlooking concerns across northern neighbours.
The 3-bedroom townhouses are intended as modern holiday homes or full-time residences and bring a soft urban edge to Australian coastal design. The development is designed to share eastern views and solar gains between all dwellings. This has been accomplished by stepping back the heights of the townhouses from the property boundaries, which doubles to reduce the visual bulk along the street frontages.
The two townhouses on the main street frontage are limited to two storeys and enjoy courtyards and first floor terraces with sweeping coastal outlooks. The ground floors are fully DDA compliant, each comprising the living areas, one bedroom with DDA shower-room at ground level with internal level connection to the garage. Two bedrooms share a bathroom and generous terrace upstairs.
The two central townhouses behind comprise three levels, allowing balconies and top floor picture windows to overlook the front residences and share the Pacific Ocean views. Four terrace-style townhouses are sited along the rear of the block, with secondary outlooks across the reserve to the rear in addition to the third floor and mezzanine outlook across to the ocean.
All townhouses enjoy double garages and individual entrances, contributing to the careful management of privacy between residences. Louvred screens buffer loggia style balconies along the first floor of rear townhouses and glazing is minimised on the elevation opposite. Further, six of the eight townhouses have been designed with two separate outdoor living spaces, offering privacy within each dwelling and the opportunity to escape unfavourable weather.
The multi-res development utilizes natural cladding materials to achieve a modern coastal aesthetic, including raw concrete and Weathertex timber sheet products used in natural and painted finishes, evoking lazy coastal associations of driftwood and salty bench seats under Norfolk Island Pines.
