Taylor has been selected to deliver the new Land and Housing Corporation affordable housing building positioned at 48-50 Wellington Road in Chester Hill. The overall building has been designed to meet the client brief of being both durable and of low maintenance, whilst not feeling like an affordable housing complex of the past.
All apartments are configured to meet the Livable and Adaptable design standards with 11% configured for adaption. Upon completion, the 6-storey block will contain 50 residential apartments of one and two bedrooms as well as a basement carpark for 25 vehicles.
The apartment design concentrates on delivering maximum utility and useful space within a compact envelope. Open plan living areas with large fenestration deliver generous and flexible space and the orientation of bedrooms and bathrooms in relation to the living spaces allows for privacy. In addition, the ground floor has communal open space utilising all areas around the building to enable multiple zones.
