Salisbury Townhouses is an adaptive reuse project that provides design driven low budget housing and an example of the role that architects can play in implementing sustainably driven design in areas where we traditionally have little presence.
Each dwelling was reconfigured on the ground floor to provide for living, dining, and kitchen spaces with a connection to the outdoors. The additional new level provides two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study space.
At around 100m2 each the townhouses are considerably smaller than most townhouses in their context. The end result is a project that is sustainable and comfortable by today’s standards and provides an alternative model for affordable housing through the reuse of existing outdated housing stock.
