The design of four luxury townhouses at West Beach presented the opportunity to design a series of large scale villas aimed at the upper market. Each townhouse incorporated about 300 square metres of floor area with upper and lower living areas, a terrace, double garage and an internal courtyard.
The construction method utilized hebel reinforced cladding for impact resistance to the ground floor levels with Focal point ‘rendapanel’ lightweight fibre cement sheet cladding to the first floor levels.
Opportunities to explore coastal themes, articulation and repetition of building form were presented. Capturing the sea views from the upper living and terrace areas was also an important part of the design brief.
