The residential development was designed according to One Planet Living’s principles, which include energy and water management, active open space, and greening.


Featuring clean line forms paired with natural materials and textures, Salt Torquay Town homes evoke a relaxed community atmosphere and a sense of connectedness to the coastal landscape and ocean.

With generous interior joinery and naturalistic materials and finishes, the interior space is filled with light while capturing the calming quality of the landscape and coastal views. A private rear garden is included with every home in Salt Torquay. There are also views of the common landscaped areas of tree-lined streets.

The door chosen for this development was the Duramax FV2NSW for it’s energy efficiently, helping keep the homes cool in summer and warm in winter.
