At Elba Park we wanted to create a new ‘modern village’, which has the location, housing, recreational facilities, community facilities and open space that successful villages have always provided, with the range of homes, design quality, environmental standards and linkages that will ensure its sustainability indefinitely.
The design response to the character of the new housing development is based on an interpretation of a contemporary vernacular. As a result, the palette of materials are based on, and respect, the genius loci.
