Other Architects has completed a Development Application for a pair of semi-detached dwellings in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.

It has been a challenging design process as the site slopes steeply to the south and is heritage-protected. We were therefore delighted to steer the design through rigorous analysis from our environmental, heritage, planning, hydraulic and landscape consultants.

The project cost is estimated at $1.6 million, with approval expected in early 2014.

More information about the Twins can be found here.
