LITTLE WILLANDRA RD, CROMER
PROJECT INFORMATION :
The design intent of this development is to provide a pleasant residential environment for seniors that is also sensitive to the unique ecological conditions present on the site. The proposed development also aims to complement the characteristics of the surrounding existing buildings through its form, siting and the materials and finishes.
The design minimises environmental impact on the site, the developed area per square meter across the site has basement parking within the confines of the building envelope. Setting back the building envelope up to 20m either side of the creek creates a nature buffer zone to preserve the ecological environment around the creek. This also provides an extensive, pleasant common open space for residents. The site slopes downwards towards Little Willandra Road, the development is sensitive to the slope of the site by utilising a stepped building form. The development's total FSR is 12% of the site which is significantly lower than the permitted 50%, meaning much of the sites ecological environment is preserved.
