Camberwell Townhouses


This pair of townhouses are located at 101 Prospect Hill Road, Camberwell. The street preserves a strong and consistent built character with significant built heritage significance.

The townhouses are designed as a contemporary interpretation of the forms, features and materiality evident in the area and attempt a sympathetic and respectful built outcome to the existing buildings.

The site is a long standard lot with limited width which offered design challenges in the form of street presence and internal daylighting. The houses are laid out along the length with a central courtyard that provides the focal point, an outdoor pocket to rejuvenate and brings daylight into the depths of the house. The design of these houses maximises the allowable building area whilst delivering spacious and light-filled spaces. Both townhouses have an underground level for garages, cellars and amenities.

Exterior finishes palette with slate shingles, brick, and cement-based render is a deliberate attempt to create a humble street presence. Internally, a mix of timber, dark cabinetry, light stone, and bronze metal accents create an elegant and playful living spaces.

Camberwell townhouses are a sensible revitalisation of a standard residential lot humbly fitting into its built heritage surrounding.

They understand the client and the right product fit which is important to me. Very punctual too.
