Design/Build Info

“Berry Residences”

Having been granted the rare opportunity to design 6 individual modular homes within one street, we utilised a series of prefabrication techniques to challenge the project home vernacular taking over the region. This resulted in a series of dwellings on mostly sloping sites that were complementary to local surroundings in terms of materiality and indoor-outdoor connections with surrounding hills and treelines.

About this client’s build

Each of the homes featured a steel framed volumetric modular unit comprising the kitchens and wet areas around which the more open living areas and bedrooms were configured. Outside of the modules, the prefabrication continued with steel framed floor cassettes, wall panels and roof modules to form the rest of the structure.

The design and installation techniques were derived to tackle the duration of building homes onsite by taking the higher labour areas into a factory environment for greater consistency on quality which also meant less trades onsite.
