The three townhouses occupy an area characterised by richly detailed traditional Victorian villas. Squire and Partners’ design approach draws on elements of the historical local vernacular, expressed in a contemporary manner to create modern family homes which sit comfortably in their context.. The interiors, also designed by Squire and Partners, feature abstracted Victorian and contemporary references. Layouts employ the generous proportions and use of formal/informal spaces typical to Victorian architecture, and combine them with adaptable rooms suited to modern family life.
