25 – 29 Melton Street, Silverwater
Client: Developer / Builder
Contract Type: Design and Construct
Architect: Ronald Cecil Sportes
Designed by renowned French architect, Ronald Cecil Sportes, these huge townhouses occupy 3 levels, with basement level parking. Purchased as a derelict site, this partially commenced development was nursed to health, with each of its promised environmental credentials restored, and workmanship of the highest quality applied to achieve record breaking sale prices in the Silverwater market.
Arc has many features that promote its “eco-friendly” credentials, including the embrace of solar passive design philosophies in orientation of apartments and provision of natural cross ventilation to minimise use of mechanical ventilation, use of recycled rain harvested water and native drought tolerant landscape species, the inclusion of double glazed windows and energy star appliances, and the use of many low carbon footprint building materials retained in raw state.
