11 St Georges Gr, Parkville
Sitting between a natural reserve rich with river red gums, and the quiet residential streets of Parkville, these townhouses set up a dialogue between the two distinct contexts through materiality and form.
Situated on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation, this four townhouse development presents a highly site responsive design with a strong emphasis on internal amenity, privacy, access to light and significant landscape planting.
The site’s key natural asset, the neighbouring mature river red gum trees, have been echoed through the architecture both materially and spatially. A visually sculptural form has been created to imbue a sense of individual identity to each townhouse, while articulating and dissolving the overall mass.
