Contemporary urban townhouses, developed within a sensitive heritage context without compromising resident amenity.

Cremorne’s evolving character provided possibilities for exploring new forms of interaction between urban dwellings and heritage surroundings.

The built form is unembellished so as not to visually compete with the surrounding decorative heritage dwellings.

Materials are deliberately simple, unrefined, unadorned and visually robust to complement the grittiness of the surrounds.
