Alder was one of our first unit development sites. In order to create the two unit site we had massive excavations to make the block flat – this included erecting a 3 meter retainer wall for the front unit as that is how far we excavated down.
We decided to excavate to not only create an easier site to work with, but the major reason was we wanted to create as much privacy as possible. With high fences and the retaining wall it created the privacy we wanted not just from the street but because the units are now built on a flat site there is no overlooking from the from front unit into the rear.
With the interior of the units, we decided to create a simple palate with warm colours with feature walls. Making the units both unique to each other and in the area. The kitchens was made out of beautiful rich timber as a focal point in the open plan room.
