Balmain Shop-Top Housing Units

Project Description

We assisted Design Delta Architects (DDA) to gain approval for three (3) new shop-top housing units above altered ground floor commercial at the rear of a Site in a heritage conservation area.  The Site had complex heritage, contamination, residential amenity and mixed-use compatibility issues & no parking was able to be provided.  It maximised floor space (achieving a 0.5:1 bonus for active frontage) whilst minimising visual & heritage impact and offset parking with bicycle provision.
