Palmeston Avenue, Templestowe Lower

Palmerston Avenue, Templestowe Lower is a pair of contemporary four-bedroom, side by side dwellings. Due to the steep site topography the proposal incorporates basement levels which provide vehicular access to large garages at street level. The driveway and front setback zones are designed as vertical garden spaces with the use of tapered crib wall retaining systems. The proposed dwellings maintain separation above ground level and comprise of cantilevered rectilinear box like forms over the garage facades allowing for elements to be further emphasised or recessed as part of a composition. The style of the proposal utilises various claddings, patterns, and materials as frame features to facades and glazing elements. The proposal responds well to the site proportions and topographical features and is well positioned and situated within its context.
