■ 384 Dandenong Road,
This project involved the demolition of the existing house and construction of seven replacement houses with a basement car park and direct access to a highway.
The site had sensitive interfaces on both sides and the impacts of overshadowing, overlooking and visual bulk to these interfaces had to be carefully mitigated to ensure a successful application. The site was also located on a main road and required a carefully designed basement ramp and passing bay to earn support from VicRoads.
Our expert team consulted with the architect to ensure the development ‘stepped down’ with the topography of the land and removed the top storey from the last townhouse to resolve the building bulk impact on the property to the rear. We engaged a reputable traffic engineer to design the ramp access and passing bay area at the front of the site to ensure it met with VicRoads requirements and Australian Standards.
