Diggers Beach, Coffs Harbour, 2008
The irregular sloping site is located in a desirable residential neighbourhood close to beach and facilities. It comprises 4,900 square metres with a street frontage of 38 metres, and is zoned for low density residential usage. The challenge for VBA was to achieve the maximum yield for the developer client, whilst satisfying the various provisions of the low density housing development control plan. Our solution was to group the 12 dwellings on site in 6 separate buildings in a loose courtyard configuration, arranged with careful regard to context, scale, vehicle access, streetscape, private and communal open space and landscaping. Three alternative floor plans were developed as direct responses to topography, aspect, privacy and available views. Each dwelling provides direct access from living areas to north facing outdoor spaces.
Home Base, Coffs Harbour, 2009
VBA was invited to join the project team assembled by North Coast Gateway Centre Pty Ltd., a member of the Bachrach Group, to prepare a successful submission for a design construct and lease offer for a major Centrelink Call Centre. The proposal comprised a commercial office building which provides a total of 5,000 sq. metres of commercial floor space, for which Centrelink is the major tenant. The design complies with Centrelink Properties Performance Specifications which include stringent requirements for energy efficiency and large column free floor areas. VBA prepared design concepts, design development and contract documentation in a close collaboration with the project director deGroot & Benson.
Pacific Bay Resort, Coffs Harbour, 2004
Won in a limited concept design competition this project delivers the final stage of a 36 unit secure residential complex developed by Thakral Holdings adjacent to the Pacific Bay Resort. The layouts of the 12 villas respond to the filtered costal views and care was taken to also integrate the design with earlier stages. VBA maintained close working relationships with Pacific Bay Properties and the project director Rider Hunt and Partners throughout the project.
