Multi-residential

The urbanisation of our cities continue to densify communities, and it is imperative that architects and developers continue to create innovative and efficient medium and higher density housing solutions. Multi-residential developments enable consolidation of the population on a smaller land footprint. This is environmentally responsible as urban infrastructure expenditure can be reduced and there is less energy wasted in transporting people to places of work and recreation.

Well designed multi-residential developments need to address siting, passive solar design issues, privacy, noise, and provide a range of private, shared and public spaces. Biscoe Wilson Architects have actively worked with private clients and developers to create innovative multi residential solutions and unban design solutions that create places and not just buildings.
