COOLAMBER

Facts

A suburban residential development of 59 large family houses, all five-bed at between 200 m² and 250 m², and a block of 17 apartments

Site area:
2.35 ha (5.8 acres)

Floor area:
14,227 m² (153,000 ft²)

Density:
6,054 m²/ha (26,393 ft²/acre)




Features

A variety of tenures, giving families the opportunity to trade up within the locality

A transition between the high density of the adjoining Adamstown area and the lower density of existing residential areas

A split level between ground and first floors provides a first floor reception room with a generous ceiling height and roof terrace, in addition to a large family room and kitchen at ground level, evocative of the traditional Victorian townhouse

A central landscaped public park creates a sense of place. The entrance to the development is aligned axially with the park through a ‘gateway’ created by two detached houses. A block of apartments planned to look like a large house terminates the axis

A large number of existing mature trees have been retained
