A modern and fit for purpose social housing apartment building for seniors in the fast growing non-metropolitan town of Queanbeyan. The site originally consisted of four dilapidated cottages.
This two-storey residential apartment building includes 18 units configured as six one-bedroom units and 12 two-bedroom units. 15 car parking spaces have been provided for an estimated 22 residents.
The site is located 2 km north-east of Queanbeyan Town Centre and is bound by Thurralilly Street to the north and Pound Street to the west. There is community transport available on demand.
Resident and vehicle entry points have been provided from both Thurralilly Street and Pound Street to activate these frontages.
The carefully considered design has different architectural styles for external walls, entry canopies and balconies so that it is consistent with the surrounding area.
Balconies and external windows face the two street frontages to reduce privacy impacts for neighbours.
