    Ausco Modular’s townhouse design addresses narrow footprint constraints of building site

    Ausco Modular

    The townhouse design proposed by Ausco Modular for a recent project addressed the limitations presented by the narrow dimensions of the site while maximising site yield.

    For the client’s long narrow block, Ausco Modular proposed an angled layout of six townhouses to maximise yield while maintaining an aesthetic streetscape and also meeting the 3.0m fire separation requirement.

    Featuring a narrow footprint measuring 4.1m wide and 12m long, Ausco Modular’s Jarrah Townhouse was the perfect solution with the clever design of the townhouse making it appear deceptively larger from the inside.

    When creating the Jarrah Townhouse model, Ausco Modular’s design team identified improvements on standard modular design principles to increase efficiencies. These included incorporating the staircase into the building design to simplify the construction process and reduce the time onsite; changing the staircase to wood to create a warmer central feature; and using the newfound space under the stairs to accommodate the laundry. The laundry is concealed under the staircase using large double doors, is easily accessed, and comfortably fits a washing machine, dryer and laundry tub.

    Key design features of Ausco Modular’s Jarrah Townhouse model include open plan living on the lower level of the home where the kitchen, dining and living areas flow into one another, creating the perfect entertaining space; open plan design allowing for cross ventilation with breezes throughout the entire ground floor in hotter climates; and two large bedrooms featuring built-in robes, TV points and desk areas with a private ensuite in the first bedroom and the second bedroom adjoining the main bathroom.

    The two-bedroom townhouse design is versatile as the deck can be easily placed at the end or the side of the building depending on the site space. The angled layout of the townhouses additionally creates a streetscape with prominent presence amongst the existing community. The grouped townhouses create a greater sense of privacy for each resident, while still being a part of a village precinct.
