Design Outcome

​​​​Unfortunately the subdivision process is often separated from the design and development of the buildings that follow. 

However, a subdivision's design creates multiple parameters that subsequent buildings must respond to.  Therefore, considering implications on the development's built form is imperative.  This section presents guidance on how to carefully design and locate building platforms and areas of private outdoor space and how to protect opportunities to ensure development will achieve the vision held at the initial subdivision design stage.

Locking in the vision

Design Outcome
