On the drawing board: Faraday Street townhouses

Posted on Apr 29, 2022

Our studio is busy working on the design for an exciting new warehouse-inspired townhouse development in Faraday Street, Carlton.


Nestled within the brick shell of an old motor garage, the project features three townhouses, with a basement, ground and first-floor level that sits above the existing garage.


Taking inspiration from rusty corrugated iron, the paired-back external materials palette features Spanish ceramic tiles, steel-framed glazing and off-form concrete. Featuring existing brickwork and an impressive full height ventilated glazed void through all levels, the interiors are designed with three shell and core spaces to accommodate bespoke fitouts for the new owners.


As part of our team for this project, we’re thrilled to once again be working with builders Jointly and the award-winning Hobart-based structural engineers Gandy & Roberts, who helped deliver the high-profile McKinnon Secondary College Gymnasium.


Permits approved: the Faraday Street townhouses development. Set back from the street within an 8m height limit, the project also includes rooftop solar and electric vehicle charging stations.
