Fitzgibbon Chase Townhouses
Arkhefield’s second project for the Urban Land Development Authority’s Fitzgibbon Chase subdivision called for low cost townhouses designed to cater for a range of affordable housing tenants, including couples and families.
The design responds to the traditional Australian home typology. The front yard facilitates engagement with the street; the back yard has been reinterpreted into a courtyard; a side service area accommodates bins, water tanks and vegetable gardens.
An innovative interlocking plan negotiates the constraints of the site and optimises amenity. A laneway model successfully separates vehicles from pedestrians. Each townhouse has a pedestrian address on the western side, a vehicular address on the eastern side and a north facing terrace, living space and bedrooms. Colours, materials and sun shading devices are alternated to promote diversity and individuality.
Arkhefield also designed and delivered the Core Apartments at Fitzgibbon Chase.
