This challenging site, at just 7.2m wide and 46m long, which used to park fifteen cars for a neighbouring office building, has now been transformed into three modern floating terrace homes with leafy raised gardens while retaining most of the preceding commercial car parking below.
With a footprint of just 330m2, the development of this urban infill space on Arthur Street exemplifies the possibilities for ‘Missing Middle’ housing in Brisbane. The new terraces, each with three bedrooms and two bathrooms offer spaciousness, open-plan living and natural light/ventilation that the residents appreciate in our sub-tropical climate.
The homes are screened by raised contemporary planters and decks, which provide a leafy oasis and ample outdoor space to the open plan living areas and contribute to privacy.
