John Earle - Merewether Beach
The Helen St development consists of three bespoke townhouses in beachside Merewether.
The project shifts away from the common strategies of randomised differentiation and articulation designed to camouflage poor buildings and instead uses simple forms, proportion and rhythm to create a quality urban addition to the street.
Basement parking allows for living on ground level, punctuated by courtyards and replaces garages and driveways with brickwork and gardens to the street. More private areas of the houses are condensed allowing each bedroom north facing windows.
