The development is a renovation considering green building concepts. The old building was a residence and recently renovated into both house and an office. The existing ground floor was developed into residential unit and the first floor was developed into office function. The concept of this building is to build an Architectural office for the designer with the residential capacity. Therefore, before selecting the site there were many considerations being an architectural practice it was not required to locate the office in a city centre. However as the practice is engaged with government institutions it was decided to find a location within the administrative capital. The land was 18.6 perches or 470m2 in extent surrounded by a 12m road and located in a residential zone. Where professional offices are permitted. The property was specifically selected as it was within 60m from the owners’ residence and approximately 60m from the main bus route. However it was purchased with knowledge of the complication related to the existing building on it.
