These homes include innovations to reduce running costs, increased livability on small footprints and exceed environmental objectives. As part of improving affordability these homes offer low-maintenance materials, flexible floor plans and room-to-grow strategies for long-term occupancy. The precinct utilises the laneway and verge areas to create landscapes that feel larger than the individual home.
The masterplan is comprised primarily of 1-storey forms with angled roofs and clerestory windows, as well as higher 2-storey forms defining the laneway ends and providing overlook and passive surveillance.
Materials selected to reflect landscape colours, with pops of brighter tones representing colours important to the local Ngunnawal people.

Shared spaces designed to prioritise people and landscape (not vehicles) offering safe, inviting, accessible and active places with attractive native planting.
