One Lakeview is a boutique community of only 19 townhomes situated within a picturesque waterside precinct of Williamstown. Each townhome comprising three or four bedrooms has been designed to provide its occupants with flexibility, comfort, and a relaxed lifestyle that is connected to nature.
ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects are synonymous with environmentally and socially sustainable design. This project is another example of their ability to create places and spaces that create community connection and support occupants to live a lifestyle that touches the planet lightly.
“ Our environments shape our experiences. The stunning natural setting here provides a canvas for a healthy and active life, with the wetlands, parklands and waterside pedestrian connections linking through to the Williamstown town centre. Our goal was to create a collection of homes that would complement the pace, space and tone of this spectacular location and bring that ease and connectivity into the project.”
