We are often asked to provide different architectural treatments to our designs depending on a range of factors including cost, aesthetics, and code requirements. This project is a more unusual example when the owner decided to increase the size of the site, resulting in a much wider façade and a more impressive result. It also reduced construction costs considerably because a basement level accommodating the garage was able to be put above ground instead.
It isn’t normally an option to just increase the width a site but in this instance the client was the owner and developer of the housing estate.
In an update to this project, we have developed the design further to introduce some more colour and high end finishes. The external forms have also evolved to create a high-end luxury look that the client is very pleased with.
