In Marrickville NSW on “Dual Occupancy” at 119 Addison Road Marrickville NSW 2204:

Steve Gartsky commented

I don't live in this particular area, but live suburb adjacent. I agree that gentle increases in density is necessary, however the execution of this design does not fit its context.

Council should consider the upper level be set back considerably from the street. Perhaps the massing shown on drawing DA-07 / 2 / Northern Elevation should be how the street elevation is presented. I think the community would receive this project better if the dual occupancy presented a single level with hipped roof as the street elevation, matching the built form of the neighbours and the locat heritage character. The upper level could then be towards the rear of the block, out of public view.

The artist's impression can tell you how out of context the current design is.
