Bills Street Hawthorn, VIC

Hayball was engaged to masterplan and design new residential buildings at Bills Street, Hawthorn to accommodate approximately 250 new dwellings comprising 1, 2 and 3-bedroom homes. Our scheme promotes high levels of amenity for all residents with each building designed to be ‘tenure blind’ and achieve equitable access to public, communal and private spaces.

The redevelopment of the Bills Street site will replace outdated walk-ups with contemporary integrated housing for social and affordable tenants as well as improving connections with the broader community. To achieve this the masterplan is configured as six separate buildings with careful placement of open space to respond to the natural topography and enhance connections to local retail, extensive open spaces and sporting facilities.

Hayball collaborated with Tract Landscape Architects to develop a series of landscape and public realm improvements that emphasise pedestrian links to improve connections.

This project is part of the Victorian Government’s Big Housing Build, ensuring more Victorians have a place to call home. At least 5 per cent of the new social housing homes will be easily accessible for residents with disabilities. This includes drop-off areas, paths, lifts and car parking. Inside the home, kitchens, bathrooms and storage will also be accessible. All homes will have a minimum Silver rating from Livable Housing Australia and carry a 5-star Green Star rating and a 7-star NatHERS average rating.
