While parts of Australia have land parcels still ripe for development, getting a return on investment is becoming trickier to achieve. Most people would agree that Australia has a large amount of land, however not all is capable of being developed. Providing affordable housing for Australia’s increasing housing demand is becoming increasingly tricky.

An innovative approach to town planning has seen the integration of townhouse developments and local commercial centres as a new way to utilise large subdivisions. The positive benefits of this multi-function community approach are:

  • Improved land yields
  • Offers a mix of dwelling types and price points to the market
  • Creates more diverse and vibrant local communities

The townhouse living concept has certainly come of age in recent years, being both an attractive option for investors because of excellent return on investment, and for owner occupiers seeking a simpler lifestyle.

This housing typology offers the dream of living in a house combined with the conveniences of urban living and low maintenance demands, especially in terms of patio gardens and being part of a community titles scheme, which takes care of cyclic maintenance and repairs. This is also why more and more downsizers are looking to townhouses and villas for their retirement properties.

Our team at HHH Architects Gold Coast has over 40 years’ experience in residential design and construction, including both single and multi-residential housing developments. When designing any project, we focus on the following criteria:

  • Be practical in design and layout
  • Fit in with its surrounds, while still having its own individual features
  • Increase the value of the land and property for the developer
  • Be sustainable and eco friendly

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics the population growth in Australia is one birth every 1 minute and 41 seconds! As the Australian population growth shows no signs of reversing or slowing down, the traditional Australian dream of a freestanding house on a quarter-acre lot will be increasingly difficult for most families to achieve. Therefore, offering a diverse approach to urban design, is one solution to our housing needs in the future.

With this in mind, affordable housing is essential for owner-occupiers and investors alike, and HHH Architects Gold Coast have the knowledge and experience to design suitable multi-residential housing for your development so contact us today to get started – We create value through design!
