- The design of the frontage positively responds to the context of the wider street
- Terraced housing is located so that they face and engage with the street
- Parking and access is located and arranged to maximise visual contact between the house and the street
Good terraced housing must relate well to the street and have a front facade that positively addresses the public realm. The terraced house should be located on the site so that a strong identity and street presence is established.
A common design issue occurs when orientation for the sun conflicts with street alignment. Where the development is located on the south side of an east-west street, the design will need to address the street as well as orientate principal living spaces, both indoor and outdoor, so that they receive optimal sun.
