Melbourne Apartment House

The driving principle of subdivision is straightforward: take a parcel of land to make more parcels from this. While you will find laws, rules and operations to follow, the subdivision and growth and development of land in established settings offers excellent and rewarding opportunities, usually inside reach from the average property investor. Our Apartment House design option is an alternative way to approach an old problem.

Architect Melbourne

Quite a few projects involve subdivision in a form or some other, which range from dual occupancy (in which a new dwelling is developed behind a preexisting one) to multi-level apartment buildings. Arising from lack of land in well-serviced, high-amenity locations, the whole process of subdivision can be generating innovative design responses on increasingly difficult sites.

In the look for infill land there has been ever smaller allotments being carved out, using land that was, until recently, considered marginal. This can be anything from a few disused car spaces with a small backyard fronting a laneway. Employing clever planning and design activates websites like these and increases housing supply in places where people wish to live. The Apartment House design solution could be suitable for the next development.

Subdivision Melbourne

Subdivision also responds for the diverse housing requirements and demands of changing family structures. Driven by a growing a preference towards proximity to move and amenities over larger allotments or yards, it is clear that there are a growing interest in a brand new typology of housing. Looking for a home which is “not-quite-apartment” and “not-quite-townhouse”, buyers are increasingly searching for something more similar to an “apartment house”.

Combining the space and layout of a townhouse with convenience of apartment living, the “apartment house” utilises clever and efficient design features to produce a low-maintenance and affordable housing alternative for buyers. Utilising balconies as private open space and incorporating clever design features, land only needs to be sufficient for that building footprint (and, if required, auto parking).

Weaving between the low-availability of vacant land in well-serviced areas and growing buyer interest in smaller, better-designed plus more affordable housing, subdivision needs to be seriously considered by entrepreneurial real estate investors.
