When more than one dwelling comes to a site, issues of design-for-climate and green servicing strategies become more complex – not to mention the challenges to design for privacy, acoustic separation, and to still accommodate all the little things that make a home work for its inhabitants (and its cars and bikes and workbenches and storage places and kitchen herbs and sand pit and... )
At whatever density, we seek to give very dwelling its own ‘sense of place’, including to accommodate positive senses of address, territoriality and prospect .
Troppo have delivered significant, awarded and published medium density housing projects in different cities around Australia.
We have worked and still work with many Government and semi-Government agencies around Australia, including to deliver affordable housing.
We are adept in the production of urban residential design guidelines; and have produced subdivision designs with an integrated housing mix in diverse Australian settings.
We have chaired and contributed to housing research panels, including for climatic response strategies. We are active in the public debate around sustainable urban futures.
