Diamond Creek Units – First and Second iteration

The Diamond Creek is a 3 two bedroom unit development. The site is embedded in the heart of Diamond Creek, close to public transport and amenities. Diamond Creek consist primarily of large single dwelling allotments. This proposal adds a new variety of housing types to the area, accommodating for the population growth. The proposal allows for elderly people to downsize from a larger house to a smaller one, while remaining in the diamond creek area.

The design is respectful to the slope of the site in the way it steps floor levels down the site, following the slope. Vertical timber panels are used on the façade, relating to the nearby weatherboard houses in the neighbourhood. The vertical aspect will create a sense of individuality and emphasise the roof profiles. The roof profiles are articulated to follow the slope of the site, gradually stepping down. The overall affect of the design is to create a sense of Scandinavian timber cottages nestled within the bushland of Diamond Creek.
