Contemporary, open, simple, and elegant
The architectural approach utilizes clean and contemporary forms in a layered manner with a mix of natural materials and colour, to guide the interface between inside and outdoors creating an easy relationship with the similarly textured landscape.
The Design Guidelines provide building and aesthetic controls to enhance the built form and environment, improving both lifestyles as well as property values. Private open spaces between buildings are extensive and will be landscaped to soften and integrate buildings within the site.
Taking cues from historically successful neighbourhood precedents, the North Clifton Estates development will encourage a variety of housing forms.
The emphasis is on symmetry and harmony in an appropriately scaled manner with simple rectangular forms, as well as refined and robust details that are intended to achieve a unified architecture appropriate to this setting.
Xeriscape style ornamental grasses, perennials, and bulbs provide strong emphasis on form and colour
Street side drought tolerant planting will be encouraged to emphasize the stepped frontage, while complimenting the built form and the streetscape planting design.
All homes within North Clifton Estates will have a standardised address marker provided. The marker will consist of a low weathering steel marker with back lit cut-out numbers.
Each landscape plan must be prepared by a professional landscape architect or landscape designer and must include automatic irrigation.
The entire front elevation of the house must incorporate dense planting and lawn is not to be the predominant feature.
A number of rock outcroppings and talus rock areas are present within the area and are found primarily on steeper, west facing slopes. Both rock outcrops and talus slopes are considered specialized habitats where vegetation cover can be sparse and usually interspersed within bedrock or rock pieces.
