4 Units on John Street

4 Units on John Street is nestled amongst old workers cottages & interwar bungalows in an older pocket of Yeppoon. The development is a functional and flexible set of residences catering to a wide demographic. The built form is sympathetic to its surroundings with street front deck, linea cladding and stepped hip roofs creating a modern take on the old bungalow. Setout rooms on the upper level are clad with VJ creating articulation and shadow which help break the bulk along the buildings length.

Site position and orientation means all units can capture prevailing south easterly winds whilst screening and selected landscaping protects from the harsh western sun. This site setout affords great year-round natural cooling which is essential in our subtropical climate. Open plan living from deck to kitchen to dining/living make the most of a small building footprint creating a space that feels larger than it really is.
