Housing NSW – Orange
Orange, NSW, Australia
- Housing NSW, ARUP Project Managers
KANNFINCH was recently responsible for the design and documentation of twelve residential developments for HNSW in Orange. The sites, ranging from 1300sqm – 3500sqm, each house between 7 – 20 dwellings. The schemes include a mixture of freestanding and attached single and double-storey structures that contain both one and two bedroom apartments.
A major focus in the planning of each site was maximizing the number of dwellings while providing good quality open space and amenity for residents. Most of the apartments have access to both private and shared outdoor space, and a large number have northern orientation, maximizing solar access.
Sustainability initiatives in the design include:
- High levels of natural ventilation, access to daylight and insulation of all apartments
- Energy efficient fixtures and fittings
- Solar boosted hot water
- 6 Green Star rating
