Sisters of St Joseph Master Plan
Baulkham Hills, NSW, Aust
- Sisters of St Joseph
- Master Plan Complete
KANNFINCH undertook this greenfield Master Plan in association with Annand Alcock Urban Design.
Our scheme, on an 8 hectare site in Sydney’s Baulkham Hills, retains the existing Sisters of St Josephs heritage building and gardens, and plans a new community of 160 apartments and 100 housing lots. Challenges in the design processes included: creating a neighborhood structure that responded to the contours of the site; overland water flood issues; and minimizing impact on adjoining neighbours.
Key sustainability features of the master plan include the integration of water sensitive urban design principles in the design, allocation of small building lots with rear lane access to provide a range of housing opportunity, minimise garage door impact on streets and increase potential population density by adding ‘granny flats’ above laneway garages.
