Residential Design—Character Code

Performance Criteria and Acceptable Solutions




Performance Criteria

Acceptable Solutions

1. Use of traditional materials

P1 Buildings use materials that complement the building materials used predominantly in pre–1946 houses nearby in the Demolition Control Precinct

Buildings have roof forms that complement the roofing styles of pre–1946 houses nearby in the street



A1.1 Buildings use traditional materials consistent with those most commonly used in pre–1946 houses in that part of the Demolition Control Precinct, including sloping roofing with eaves of similar proportions to pre–1946 houses nearby in the street

Note: Traditional materials are most likely painted timber walls and tin roofing



Additional requirements for sites that contain pre–1946 building/s:

A1.2 Pre–1946 building/s are sited at the front of the site at the street frontage

A1.3 Building/s built prior to 1900 are reused, refurbished and retained

OR

2. Use of contemporary materials with character elements

P2 The building height and bulk must complement the predominant scale of pre–1946 houses nearby in the street

Refer to Figure g



For houses (including small lot houses):

A2.1 Where the topography is generally flat, the eaves height is within 20% of adjoining eaves heights

OR


For multi–unit dwellings:

A2.2 Buildings that are taller or wider than the type of building prevalent in the street consist of clearly distinguishable parts similar in scale to existing pre–1946 housing

Refer to Figures g and h



P3 The building setting must complement the traditional setting of pre–1946 houses nearby in the street

Notes:
This traditional setting usually involves a single width driveway and a fairly uniform building line



This Performance Criterion does not apply to rear access lots

A3.1 Buildings are set back from any road alignment (excluding eaves, awnings, stairs and garage) within 20% of the average front setback of the nearest pre–1946 buildings fronting the same street

Additional requirements for house/s (including small lot houses)

A3.2 Garages are setback from any road alignment in a position similar to garages located on sites of pre–1946 houses nearby in the street

A3.3 The crossover width is a maximum of 3m

Additional requirements for sites that contain pre–1946 building/s:

A3.4 Pre–1946 building/s are located at the front of the site




A3.5 Building/s built prior to 1900 are reused, refurbished and retained

P4 The building form must complement the traditional elements of pre–1946 houses nearby in the street

Note:
This traditional building form usually comprised a solid core with attached or integrated verandahs raised above the ground on timber supports. Enclosed areas under houses generally maintained the street appearance of lightweight supports to upper floors and reflected the layout of upper floor verandahs



A4.1 The building includes a solid core with attached or integrated lightweight verandah or balcony structures

A4.2 Different floor levels are distinguished with the use of entries, windows and balconies

A4.3 Where the building is located at the front of the site, living areas, verandahs and windows are orientated towards the street

Refer to Figure i



Additional requirements for houses (including small lot houses):

A4.4 The ground floor of the building gives the appearance of a lightweight support to the upper floor and reflects the layout of upper floor verandah or balcony structures

P5 Roof form must reflect traditional roofs in that part of the Demolition Control Precinct

A5.1 Predominant roof forms will include one or more of a combination of pyramids, hips or gables of a similar pitch and proportions to those of pre–1946 houses nearby in the street

In a sloping street where the rhythm of stepping levels and roofs is a characteristic of the streetscape, that stepping is maintained

Refer to Figure c

A5.2 The building includes eaves that are of similar proportions to eaves on pre–1946 houses nearby in the street

A5.3 Roof materials are similar to the roof materials on pre–1946 houses nearby in the street


P6 External elements, materials and detailing must reflect pre–1946 architectural themes, and reduce building bulk and form a transition with the external landscape

A6.1 External elements such as lightweight verandahs and stairs, eaves, overhangs, sunhoods, lattice screens and batten panels are evident to reflect those of pre–1946 houses nearby in the street and are sufficient to cast shadows and provide three–dimensional effects

Refer to Figure j



A6.2 Where masonry is used it is rendered and/or painted and used in conjunction with other more lightweight materials, particularly to define upper and lower levels.

For houses (including small lot houses) these lightweight materials predominate



P7 Front fencing must reflect pre–1946 architectural styles and complement the building design

A7 Any front fences are compatible in materials, height and transparency with other fencing on sites of pre–1946 houses nearby in the street

Note:
Traditional fences are usually low and reasonably transparent with timber paling or wire
