Defence Housing, Adamstown Master Plan & DCP
Architectus prepared the Adamstown Master Plan and Development Control Plan to accommodate Defence housing located three kilometres from central Newcastle, NSW.
The master plan provides 82 lots within a ‘garden suburb’ character. A range of house types are provided, including courtyard and town house, with the layout of the site maximising views to the adjacent Merewether Golf Club and bushland beyond.
Water sensitive urban design measures have been incorporated with the use of site stormwater for the adjoining Merewether Golf Course. An open space area provides amenity and recreation benefits for both the site and surrounding Adamstown neighbourhood.
