2 Hamilton Road, Bayswater, Western Australia
A high-end rental development with lifestyle appeal and future-proof design.
This project was envisioned as a long-term investment by the developers, who are self-funded retirees. Situated right next to the old Bayswater Town Centre, the property is minutes from shops, cafes and Bayswater Train Station – a short commute into the Perth CBD. The site is to be developed into a group of six dwellings of varying sizes, with a key focus on the sustainability and longevity of the design.
Targeted at the high-end rental market, our design is sleek and contemporary, with a flat-roofed cubic feel. This simple approach will keep the homes from dating and minimises their external upkeep for the owners. An uncomplicated palette of greys and whites with warmer timber elements will likewise keep its classic appeal. High quality, durable materials were a must. Heavy masonry grounds the structures, with texture and softness provided by face brickwork, painted rendered masonry walls, corrugated metal sheeting and composite timber cladding. Each home also has its own individual luxury accents, from views across the Bayswater township to double-height, soaring ceilings in the townhouses.
Sustainability was built into the design from the outset. With careful planning and a little extra investment in the construction, we were able to set a high benchmark of 7 NatHERS stars, aiming for 8+ as development continues. Each home faces north-east, drinking in the natural light and benefitting from the winter sun, while remaining protected from the summer heat. Double glazing further assists in maintaining a comfortable temperature, as well as keeping out noise from the street.
The plan currently comprises a fantastic mix of lifestyle homes:
2 x Classic Single Level Apartments
2Bed x 2Bath
3 x Two-Storey Townhouses
3Bed x 2Bath x 1Powder/WC
1 x Two-Storey Townhouse
2Bed x 1Bath + separate Powder/WC
