Place Logic worked in a multi-disciplinary team to deliver a Master Plan and DA documentation that responds to environmental values of the site.

The design seeks to deliver a range of living options within a transition from the village setting of Sutton to the rural surroundings.

Beginning with an assessment of the opportunities and constraints, Place Logic undertook a detailed design process including project vision, setting design and planning principles for the site, testing development scenarios for the layout and refining to accommodate environmental outcomes, resulting in the final approved master plan.

Each lot has been carefully designed including the siting of each dwelling in relation to views and privacy. Appropriate native species were utilised in a native planting and appropriate material palette that created a seamless, gradual transition from Sutton village to rural holdings.

We worked closely and effectively with statutory planners and environmental consultants to re-zone and master plan the semi-rural estate to a high standard; both on time and on budget.

The project showcases Place Logic's competence in responding to site conditions, meeting significant legislative challenges, and ensuring that the development quality and outcomes align with client requirements.
