Utilisation of Terrace

- One Balcony hidden from Public View for washing and drying of clothes
- Balcony adjacent to dining room can be landscaped
- One Balcony for keeping of utilities like children's bicycle
Better Design Practice
"Where other private open space is not provided, provide at least one primary balcony. . Primary balconies should be:
- located adjacent to the main living areas, such as living room, dining room or kitchen to extend the dwelling living space.
- Sufficiently large and well proportioned to be functional and promote indoor/outdoor living. A dining table and two chairs (smaller apartment) and four chairs (larger apartment) should fit on the majority of balconies in any development.
- Consider secondary balconies, including Juliet balconies or operable walls with balustrades, for additional amenity and choice in larger apartments:
- adjacent to bedrooms
- or clothes drying, site balconies off laundries or bathrooms; they should be screened from the public domain."
