The brief for Haus Lane was to create a small urban village, with an eclectic mix of architecture based around the humble terrace home.
Some designs are reflective, some are uber-modern; no two are the same.The combination of design styles and such variety of façade detailing adds texture and a unique feel to these two and three-bedroom terrace homes.
Haus Lane is the second venture of a design collaboration between TT Architecture, SPACELAB and Department of Design. The first project, Stockdale 45, is now nearing completion, and represents leading edge, urban terrace-type architecture.
SPACELAB master-planned the village layout, working in sync with the site of eight townhouses directly behind Haus Lane to create a hidden parkland garden that the homes at the rear of the development will overlook and open onto.
As part of the urban renewal to this ideally located site, the public laneway is being widened, re-landscaped and the pathway replaced and widened to bike lane width. The interiors are funky, functional and well-considered, with timber flooring flowing out onto fully detailed and landscaped courtyards; every one uniquely designed.
Haus Lane is ideally located almost equidistant between the Ainslie and Dickson shopping centres. Bluegum early learning school, North Ainslie primary school, Daramalan, Merici and Dickson colleges are within walking distance as is Emmaus Christian school.
Directly opposite are the Majura playing fields, and of course the Macarthur Avenue light rail stop is just a 5-minute walk away, putting the City, Braddon and the ANU within easy access.
