This small scale regional project is made unique through civic generosity and community mindedness. It comprises 5 commercial tenancies and one house occupied by the developer, whose goal was to make a positive contribution to the community of Trentham whilst creating an income stream for retirement.
The project demonstrates a contemporary and finely crafted architecture that references elements of the local vernacular in both materiality and detailing.
Passive solar design has been prioritised, with all tenancies facing north, and a generous landscaped public forecourt has been incorporated into the layout that activates and elevates the tenancies and provides a new space for both locals and tourists to enjoy.
