Despite the need in many areas for more affordable and flexible rental accommodation, boarding house developments are often contentious and planning approval can be difficult to obtain. This is in part due to the stigma attached to the old-style boarding houses giving rise to strong opposition from neighbours. At ArkExpress, we understand that it is important for these developments to be skilfully designed to minimise impacts on neighbours and to fit in with the local area. The team at ArkExpress have worked on a number of new generation boarding houses across a range of budgets and are very familiar with the most significant issues that determine DA outcomes and how to avoid common pitfalls in site selection, design and the DA process.
At ArkExpress, we welcome the challenge to design well-crafted dwellings on a micro scale. We enjoy an excellent reputation for our boarding house designs. You’ll find they’re have comfortable and well-appointed layouts and with the right balance of community space.
