When contemplating any type of development from a house behind a house to a multi-unit project, consideration must be given to how many levels you want or need. The answer to this question can either present itself organically out of necessity or through a considered decision.
As zoning density increases and parcels of land become more modest in size, two and three storey dwellings can assist in maximising a development’s potential when faced with lot constraints. These lots are generally closer inner-city locations with predominate zoning from R40 to R60. A significant advantage of townhouse style dwellings is that they can be designed to have a smaller footprint at ground level. This then aides the developer in realising the developments full yield potential as permitted by its zoning if so desired.
Town houses also provide scope for design flexibility when looking at various configurations such a separated family zones, reverse living and mezzanine levels. The design opportunities also extend to the external façade which promote architectural expression and street appeal.
