as architect of this townhouse project, designed the 7 unit townhouse
development in Sydney's eastern suburb. In this townhouse
development, there are five 3 bedroom units and two 2 bedroom
units. Each of the townhouse unit is accessed
from a common shared landscaped pathway (on the right of the building
in the picture). Beneath the townhouse building, there is an
underground carpark providing 2 carspaces for each townhouse
TOWNHOUSE CONSTRUCTION DESIGN
townhouse construction is of rc piered retaining wall, concrete slab
brick walls, timber roof trusses and concrete roof tiles.
Townhouse development can also be built in timber frame or steel frame
with external cladding and internal plasterboard walls.

are a row of attached two or three storey dwellings. Some
townhouses are designed with attached garage on the ground floor, while
other townhouses are designed with garages on a basement floor. Efficient vehicular
access to the townhouse development and direct access between parking
and townhouse units are usually one of the most important design
consideration in the layout of a townhouse development and the
preparation of townhouse plans.
It is preferable to provide direct link between parking and individual
townhouse unit. However, sometimes it may not be possible to
provide such link, then passage through a common area may become
necessary. The number and location of staircases between the
basement carpark floor and the ground floor of the townhouse
development will impact on the ground floor layout and how access to
individual townhouse unit is effected. Likewise, the location and
arrangement of the staircase between ground floor and first floor
within each townhouse unit will affect the layout of bedrooms and
TOWNHOUSE FLOOR PLAN LAYOUT
When planning a
townhouse floor plan layout, it is important to
provide direct access to an outdoor living area from the indoor living
area, such as lounge, dining or family sitting area. Since
townhouse units are close to each other, it is also important to
consider privacy and avoidance of cross looking in a townhouse
design. Sunlight access for the indoor and
outdoor living areas is an important design consideration when
preparing townhouse design and townhouse floor plan layout.
