This project sees the development of a new precedent for residential living in Batemans Bay. Set into an established precinct of generally single dwellings with some units, the Golf Links Drive project takes advantage of a location in close proximity to the Clyde River and an increased allowable density and height. Compliance with Apartment Design Guide requirements, including sun access and cross ventilation, was an important consideration in the design.
The Solution / Outcome
The project, marketed as “GOLD” is a 15 unit development of five levels, containing a combination of one, two and three bedroom dwellings. There is a strong argument for increased population in existing urban areas as well-considered densification capitalises on existing urban infrastructure while limiting urban sprawl. This complex will have the added benefit of being close to golfing and boating.
For Edmiston Jones, this project was a chance to exercise our skill in specialised housing. To this, we added our in-house experts in Interior Architecture, accessibility and sustainability. As evidence of the breadth of our experience in residential design, we have served this same client for over a decade with alterations to the family home, a 92 bed aged care centre and other commercial ventures. This range of experience informs all our work. Add a healthy measure of curiosity and we achieve projects like GOLD.
