The Quay Torquay 2005

This is a 580 lot residential subdivision on 59 hectares between Torquay beach and the Surf Coast Highway. Salter Architects developed and wrote the Design Guidelines to encourage coastal rather than metropolitan design.

The guidelines must compliment state and local planning schemes while underwriting standards required for house design, siting, ESD and landscaping. The document is both prescriptive and directional to set in guarantees of quality and completion that all residents can rely on when purchasing land and house packages.
