One Lakeview

Maximising liveability and minimising environmental impact

Location: Williamstown, VIC 3016
Status: Town planning

Situated on the cusp of Jawbone Reserve within the picturesque waterside precinct of Williamstown, One Lakeview is a community of 19 bespoke townhomes designed to maximise liveability and minimise environmental impact.

Drawing inspiration from the surrounding coastal environment and stretches of parkland, we designed each home to include robust, textural materials such as bagged brick and thoughtfully orientated spaces to maximise visual connections to nature.

Gabled rooflines create a contemporary form softened by chamfered windows that bring a unique sense of place into the design.

Adaptable spaces are incorporated throughout flexible layouts to complement the relaxed lifestyle of this seaside community and provide residents with comfort and future flexibility as their needs change.

Rainwater harvesting, endemic planting, carefully considered external building fabric, energy efficient fittings and fixtures and cross ventilation minimises impact on the environment. As well as the inclusion of bicycle storage to encourage green travel and support residents active and healthy lifestyles.

The natural setting here provides a canvas for a healthy and active life, with the wetlands, parklands and waterside pedestrian connections linking through to the Williamstown town centre. Our goal was to create a collection of homes that would complement the pace, space and tone of this location and bring that ease and connectivity into the project.
