This multi dwelling proposal was perhaps the quickest DA approval we have had.

The built form follows the contours of the landscape as it falls from north to south by some 25m.

Each dwelling has private lift access and is arranged across 2 levels, which ensures each room appreciates the views across Sydney Harbour and out to the heads.

Maximizing the GFA on the site whilst still providing for generous landscaped areas resulted in two pavilions. A class 1 dwelling at the top and 2 x class 2 apartments at the lower end which also allowed for less excavation, a softer footprint and generous north facing courtyards to two of the dwellings.
