WRIGHTS duplex




This new duplex development has been carefully crafted under the Complying development pathway. The Low-Rise Housing Diversity Code in New South Wales, gives us the ability to fast track the approval process and get on site quickly.

Using this pathway we were able to develop two, 5 Bedroom, 3 bathroom homes with basement and garages for our client.

The Side by side duplex arrangement is usually defined by an elongated plan and limitation of natural light deep into the plan. To solve this we seperate the first floor from the ground, creating a horizontal glazing datum. Working with large punctures through the centre of the plan, skylights and double voids the spaces feel open and saturated with light.

An emphasis on robust materials with hard lines is made to feel weightless as they home floated above itself and the street.

We see no limitation to produce overly spacious living arrangements and the benefits of complying development pathways can be seen in the resolved architectural design at Wrights Duplex.
