Architecture HBO+EMTB | Lilyfield Housing Redevelopment

HBO+EMTB | Lilyfield Housing RedevelopmentThe Lilyfield Housing Redevelopment has set a new standard for public housing developments in Australia. It demonstrates that highly sustainable public housing outcomes are both realistic and achievable in terms of function, project demographics and housing affordability. Located on an 8,230sqm site within Sydney’s inner west, the redevelopment comprises 24 one-bedroom units, 58 two-bedroom units and 6 three-bedroom units of which 10% are specifically designed to the latest standards of accessibility for occupants with disabilities.

The project features passive solar design attributes, with all units having north or east facing living areas and natural cross ventilation. Solar design features include photovoltaic cells for solar hot water and the on-site production of electricity. The latest technology in gas boosted solar hot water systems is also incorporated into the north facing roof forms over the access stair wells.

HBO+EMTB | Lilyfield Housing RedevelopmentThe built form is fully integrated and in keeping with the character of the neighbourhood, with minimal impact on the amenity of neighbouring properties. The introduction of bright, contemporary colours echo Sydney’s ‘vibrant cities manifesto’. Recessed balconies and projecting balcony slabs create articulation and shadows and add visual depth to the facades. They also reflect ESD considerations, assisting in the control of solar penetration.

Each dwelling has private open space in the form of a ground level courtyard or at least one balcony with optimum solar orientation north/east aspect.
