The ‘AVA I’ development of 18 dwellings in Melbourne’s south-east growth corridor has won the Victorian Architecture Award for Residential Architecture (Multiple Housing).

The follow up release, ‘AVA II’, comprises ten townhouses and received the Award for Excellence in the category of Affordable Housing at last year’s Urban Development Institute of Australia Awards. It has been developed in conjunction with Wolfdene and architects SJB.

Wolfdene director Jon Aitchison said housing affordability remains a big issue in the Melbourne market, so our response was to deliver a quality medium density product that mixes design and function.

“From a design perspective, we wanted to bring the architectural quality identifiable with inner city developments to these new communities," he said.

“With blocks of land shrinking and housing density increasing, the challenge and opportunity was to provide more financially, socially and environmentally appealing homes. 

“Our belief is that affordable can still be aspirational, and our design team is constantly pushing themselves to remain ahead of the curve and set the standards for product being delivered in greenfield communities.”

Wolfdene’s latest completed development at Point Cook (above) features 44 two and three bedroom townhouses and is further evidence of their commitment to delivering design that positively contributes to the built environment.
