Intermediate Terrace

A terrace house is a house on a lot which forms part of a row of at least 3 dwelling houses abutting the common boundaries with party walls. The width of the terrace plot may vary but it should not be less than 6m wide for the intermediate units and 8m for the corner units.

There are 2 types of terrace houses; namely, terrace house I & terrace house II. For terrace house I, front setback from the road is based on buffer requirement (see Figure 3). For the terrace II, the building wall and roof eaves are setback 2m (fixed) and 1m from the road reserve respectively. A standard plot size and typical layout are shown in Figure 4.
