Located within walking distance of the East Geelong shopping precinct, schools, recreational facilities, medical services and a bus route into central Geelong and the railway station, the Cube Property townhouses located at 3-5 Lomond Terrace offer a unique example of affordable yet spacious, energy and water efficient design within an well established neighbourhood.
A total number of seven units are proposed for the site, five on the western side, and two on the eastern side. Units to the east are made up of one bedroom units with a study. Two accessible units are included meeting the Australian Standard for Design for Access and Mobility (AS1428.1.2001). Units to the east are 3 bedroom, double garage types.
This development will be an example of Ecologically Sustainable Design (ESD) for a residential development which will be a model for the cooler climate zones of Australia and possibly beyond. It should be noted that most of strategies proposed are not particularly difficult to realise in themselves, more it is the way in which they have been integrated to cover all key development issues to achieve an overall concept which wholistically addresses ESD issues.
