The Prince’s Terraces Adelaide was a development project delivered in partnership with Defence Housing Australia, Renewal SA and Prince’s Trust Australia. Located in the suburb of Bowden, the development was completed in December 2017 and consists of 8 terraces and 4 mews apartments. The design draws on the heritage of local context, helping to maintain and build a sense of place and identity.
It was the first residential project in Australia to be awarded 6 Green Stars ‘As Built’ in its category by the Green Building Council of Australia. Its carbon footprint is reduced by more than 50 per cent when compared to a standard house and is predicted to use 50 per cent less energy and potable water than a typical urban townhouse. The Mews apartments to the rear were also constructed of recycled bricks.
To add to these qualities, The Prince’s Terrace Adelaide is now home to 12 Australian Defence Force families and has so far been the winner of seven design and sustainability awards, including:
