Gipps Street, Claremont Meadows, Sydney
“Acacia Grove” is a medium density housing project for sixty-two affordable, small lot houses on a site east of Penrith.
The project was designed as a series of smaller precincts and clusters. The layout took advantage of the adjacent conservation area, created good streetscapes and addressed noise impacts associated with the proposed future widening of Gipps Street.
The layout eliminates the impact of garages to street frontages, gives good street address and views to the adjacent Conservation Zone. It optimises dwelling orientation for passive solar energy and provides adequately sized private open space.
