Infill is the buzz word in the development world at the moment, but why?
Besides the increasing costs of providing infrastructure to the suburbs on the outer fringe of Perth, another very important reason is environmental!
Biodiversity is the variety of plant and animal life in the world or a particular habitat, a high level of which is usually considered to be important and desirable. It’s particularly important on the outskirts of Perth because according to a recent article in the Australian, we have species here in Perth which exist nowhere else in the world. We’re a kind of hot spot within a larger biodiversity hot spot. Therefore we need to utilise the land and infrastructure we already have at hand, rather than encroaching on the land that these species call home.
We all know humans hate change and for most West Aussies, we hate the idea of giving up our large backyards.
Unfortunately with our ever changing world, this is clearly not a sustainable option and the housing industry is looking for options to accommodate our ever growing population.
Did you see the latest episode of Better Homes and Gardens? They featured a house with five, self-contained bedrooms in the Bayside suburbs of Brisbane. This is a compact living at its best, utilising every square inch of space and minimising our ecological footprint.
Similar to this project is our one bedroom, one bathroom houses in Bayswater. The project completed in late 2015 and has been a very popular style of living for the busy professional. Each house has their own backyard and garage which creates the feeling of living in a large family home, without the same land requirements and upkeep.
Both of these projects have been built in established areas offering shops, schools, public transport and other established amenities close at hand. There was no need to remove native bush, agricultural land or relocate native wildlife.
