Munro Court Development, Castlemaine

This ecologically sustainable housing development in central Victoria has been designed with non-defined boundaries between individual dwellings by Lifehouse Design. The design brief was to integrate the landscape and dwellings using local plants. The buildings do not compete with eachother in the way of a convention streetscape, this allowed us to approach this project as one garden with eight buildings integrated into the space. There are some private areas screened with plantings and partitions structured around connecting 'rooms' of themed plantings throughout the landscape. The use of local plants create a firm sense of place and they have thrived over hot, dry summers. This development has succeeded because there has been little compromise in both philosophy and design.
