Mt Martha Design + Drafting Project 3

Designed by Mount Martha Drafting & Design and built by JDB Constructions, this project involved the subdivision of a vacant lot and the development of single-storey duplex townhouses.

Due to the nature of the duplex design, Mount Martha Drafting & Design needed to ensure the centre of the buildings received plenty of natural light. To achieve this, the roof was raised and a modern lantern-inspired light structure was constructed, creating highlight windows above. The raised roof not only maximises the natural light entering the building but also provides a sense of grandeur on entry into the townhouses, with 3.9-metre high ceilings through the core of the building.

The central elevated roof allows the occupant to appreciate the sun’s movement through the building, with dappled light patterns projecting into the hallway throughout different times of the day. For example, the eastern unit utilises the morning sun and filters light into the ensuite and bathrooms, providing a soft glow above the showers. The same ambient light is displayed in the study and bathroom of the western unit in the later part of the day.

To ensure sustainability throughout the design and construction of the townhouses, all windows are double-glazed, which minimises the loss of heat from the building during the winter months. Recycled bricks were also used to juxtapose the modern flavour of the townhouses with some old-world charm.

The team at Mount Martha Drafting & Design has more than 25 years’ experience and offers expert advice for new homes, renovations and additions, townhouses, unit developments, subdivisions and commercial developments.
