Corlette Street Multi Residential
Two townhouse designs are interspersed across the site which create an undulating skyline and colour palette sympathetic to surrounding dwellings.
The Corlette Street residential development is a ‘missing middle’ of residential building design. The project includes 10 Torrens title dwellings designed as a modern and complementary interpretation of terrace housing reminiscent of the conservation zone of the historic inner-city suburb of Cooks Hill.
Location: Cooks Hill, NSW
The Corlette Street residential development has been designed to sit comfortably as a modern suite of townhouses in one of Newcastle’ oldest suburbs. The design has two floor plan typologies; a two-storey design with rear-access parking; and a three-storey design with street-access parking; reducing drive-way impact and allowing more landscaping features along the street frontage. Taking material cues from the single-storey brick Federation and Victorian dwellings, the street elevation is softened by an alternating colour pallet of lightweight materials linked by a similar brick and front courtyard spaces. A combination of concrete slab and raised timber floor construction was used in response to the requirement for flood water movement within a flood storage area.
