Florida Road, Palm Beach

GSA Planning provided extensive planning, heritage and traffic advice for the demolition of an existing dwelling and construction of a new dwelling house in Florida Road, Palm Beach. Designed by Tim West Architect, the proposal included a new three-level dwelling house with a small pavilion behind and a new double garage and balconies with a terrace over providing views to the ocean.

Located on a steep site characteristic of many allotments in Palm Beach and also within a conservation area, the proposal was the result of a careful analysis of the building context by the architect, and is compatible in form, scale and character with the existing buildings in the locality, including the nearby heritage buildings.
