Affordable townhouse development planned to create a sense of community around communal green space

The Enclave comprises of a development of 37 townhouses at Buderim, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The site lies just off the principal corridor linking the growth areas of Sippy Downs Town Centre and the University of the Sunshine Coast, on level ground backing onto bushland forest.

The extremely cost effective design uses simple contemporary building forms, married to a subtle textural and tonal palette to create an elegant architecture set against the lush backdrop.

This proposal introduces the townhouse building type to the area, traditionally a more urban model, to meet demands for housing generated by its growing neighbours.

The development principally comprises of two storey, three bedroom houses in four plan configurations, with non-standard three storey, three bedroom and two storey, two bedroom models completing the mix. All types include internal garages.

The planning of the site uses an efficient layout around two principal internal streets creating street frontages both inside and outside the site, and a sense of community around communal green space. Careful composition and planning provides texture and richness along streets using the simple modernist house forms as the building blocks of a more complex whole.
