Australia's Best Houses/ from Adelaide Architect, Warwick O' Brien

Two-storey townhouses - Unley, South Australia

Case Study

A pair of two-storey townhouses have been created on a block of land that is, each, no wider than a double garage. Each house is 200 square metres in area and comprises 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, study, open plan living/dining and kitchen with double garage and lap pool. The building is of steel frame construction with polished concrete floors on both levels. They have been developed to a high level of sustainability using solar passive principles and low maintenance materials. The courtyard design allows almost all spaces to have a northerly aspect.
