Smallman Street townhouses are located near Bulimba’s Oxford Street. The suburbs mixed fabric of traditional timber and tin homes, 6-pack unit blocks and modern Mc Mansions provides an eclectic context to respond to. While multi-residential in scale, the design relies heavily on domestic details to ground it within its site, context and sense of scale. The form of the building takes direct inspiration from a traditional Queenslander and is broken down to three vertical bands which respond to the activity within. These are defined by articulated and textured materials which further work to reduce the scale of the building. The ground floor is envisioned as an undercroft, contemporising the cool and flexible space typically located under Queenslanders.
