Somerfield Keysborough 2008

This is a residential subdivision for 2500 house lots in the eastern suburbs in Melbourne. The area was traditionally used for market gardens and chicken farms. Salter Architects wrote and administer the Design Guidelines for housing.

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