DESIGN STATEMENT

Covering almost an entire block this project was a front runner in the urban renewal of Pyrmont Point. Seven grand scaled terraces front a park and the remaining 18 houses were courtyard styled. It is our belief that courtyard housing provides an under- utilised housing model that is well suited to Sydney's climate and a medium density environment. The courtyard provides quality private outdoor area, bringing northern light into the floor plan, and is also an effective extension of living areas.

A major priority on this project was the focus on streetscape, articulation and achieving the right amount of variety within a repetitive rhythm. The result was a project we remain proud of architecturally and that sold well beyond market expectations.
