New Sydney Terrace

New Sydney Terrace

The New Sydney Terrace design reimagines the classic Sydney terrace housing & backyard typology into an upright cluster of living units, vertical terraces, gardens and communal spaces, constructed with contemporary technology and sustainable materials.

The proposal offers a strategic formula of adaptable modularity combined with the latest engineering capability as well as its suitability to different sizes of sites. 

Our housing scheme is affordable to develop whilst embracing its Sydney character. It is suitable for diverse families and communities today and far into the future.

Regardless of the site area, the building sits on a minimal-sized footprint to limit the scope of site excavation and fit into the smallest urban sites.

At the heart of the building, strong concrete core anchors the building frame and accommodate additional future levels and extended unit modules. 

Cross-laminated timber structure forms the main frame of the building to support all initial and future modular units.

Modular housing units are arranged into various floor plans, creating a dynamic profile and opportunities for private & communal balconies, sky courtyards, as well as vertical landscapes.

Adaptable Modularity

Our design recognises that each household uses their home differently with varying spatial priorities to maintain their wellness, entertain their friends and relax in their own homes. 

The design of pods that could be mixed and matched to form half, one module or multiple modules forms the basis of a unit. This offers the users to tailor-make their units to suit their uses and form quality spaces. No one unit is identical. The composition of the pods form a 1.5 m deep core that equips and facilitates various functions. By maximising the core volume via folding up the bed into the wall or tucking dining tables beneath the kitchen bench, the floor space becomes multi-functional. 


This optimises space efficiency and allows the spaces to dine, cook and sleep to overlap in a myriad of ways. 

As the household grows, or when one household moves out and a new one arrives, there is the opportunity to swap the pods with other households in the building. For example, swapping a bathroom pod for more storage space or changing to a dual-double bed pod for a growing household. 

We believe that affordability could come from eliminating wasted and unused space by offering adaptable modular components creating unique homes. 

Components

Each building comprises of a reinforced concrete core at the centre anchoring a cross-laminated timber framing system. The primary cross-laminated timber frame is constructed in 5m x 5m x 3m grids with a degree of overhang along the edges of the building for future bracing points.

Each unit and its components are hosted within the grid system to maximise simplicity of construction and interchangeability of components. 

By standardising the components, occupants & developers are able to modify, refurbish, and extend current units as well as deliver new units in the future.

Unique high-rise neighbourhood at every site

The combination of modular arrangement and the proposed engineering solution allows the design to have a very small footprint at the base of the building. This enables the design to work with a range of land sizes, from the smallest sized lot in the heart of the Sydney to a large-sized land in suburban Sydney, wherever our housing approach is required.

The infinite sequential possibilities of floor plans also allow us to create any required building envelope in order to achieve optimum visual connection as well as maximum solar and daylight access.



When two or more towers are designed next to one another, the clusters can be arranged to have connections with each other at any level. This opens up opportunities to create communal gathering spaces, gardens, as well as sports amenities.

When the floor plans are sequenced strategically, the clusters can form many double-height and triple-height balconies and create opportunities for sky gardens with tall trees.
