This pair of urban townhouses in Collingwood are exemplary pieces of compact, high-quality inner city architecture, transforming a 76 square-metre parcel of land into two light-filled, three-bedroom vertical dwellings. A stones-throw from Collingwood’s cafe culture, each house is composed of six levels, including a basement, ground-floor garage and roof-top terrace. A spacious steel and timber stairwell connects levels, forming a light-well that illuminates, ventilates and enables vertical living. The creative use of joinery allows spaces to adapt according to need, with kitchen and living areas performing as multi-functional spaces. The façade’s operable architectural metal screens create beautiful dappled light in the interiors, while rooftop decks offer stunning views across Collingwood.
