Homes at Octave are best described as contemporary in style. This will be achieved through simple forms including low-pitched roofs and well-proportioned façade elements, combined with controlled use of materials and colours selected to reflect the home location surrounded by nature.
Period styles such as Edwardian and Georgian style, and period detailing such as quoins, fretwork, lace work etc. are not generally permitted. Ornamentation of facades is to be limited to ancillary building elements such as porches, balconies, pergolas and architectural screens to encourage articulation of the façade and interest to the streetscape. Stylistic exceptions will be assessed at the discretion of the DAP.
