The Shire of Boddington were successful in sourcing funding for 7 Age Appropriate Accommodation units and a Multifunction Centre for their local community. The units are the second stage of a large scale development, and feature 3 contemporary colour schemes across the facades. The homes are light, welcoming and feature practical materials suitable for aged care living.
The Multifunction space can be used for small community gatherings and activities, with a semi commercial kitchen and office space, and features a community garden for the residents.
EUCLA MEN'S QUARTERS
Built to house local staff, these homes were built in Perth and transported to site, which was the most feasible outcome considering the remoteness of the site. Solar orientation was taken into consideration in the site planning, and landscape design was incorporated so as to better connect with the site.
The six Independent Living Units in Tambellup were constructed to provide suitable accomodation to encourage some of Tambellup's older population to remain in the country town. The units have been designed around a central communal courtyard and each three bedroom unit features their own north facing garden courtyard.
The Stead Road Residential Complex is a contemporary, two storey unit development on the edge of the Albany city centre. The design optimises the north facing aspect of the site and with carefully designed internal courtyards, creates a sense of space for each unit and quality community spaces within the complex.
The Jarrah Glen development in Walpole provides high quality adaptable housing integrated into the existing Walpole community. The project consists of 6 energy efficient 2 bedroom units situated around a communal garden and BBQ area. The gardens are landscaped with native plants and a sophisticated swale drainage system that naturally cleans the storm water from the site before it drains into the nearby inlet.
This multi residential development was designed to fit into an historic streetscape in the centre of Albany. The heights of the houses were carefully planned to ensure that every living had sweeping views of the harbour, and access to outdoor spaces to maximise the benefits of the winter sun but shelter from the sea breezes.
COLLET BARKER COURT
Collet Barker Court is a master planned adaptable housing development constructed by Plantagenet Village Homes for the Mount Barker community. In 2014 H+H Architects delivered the first 5 units, consisting of a mix of 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom units. A further 7 units and a clubhouse was added to the development and completed in 2018.
Situated in the centre of Denmark, Deco Housing is a cutting edge environmental housing development that will provide a truly sustainable alternative for urban living. The project consists of 12 residences and a community building linked by pedestrian pathways and shared gardens. The buildings all feature passive solar design with flexible spaces to suit varying uses and an ageing population.
Materials for the project are being selected for their environmental credentials and will include Hempcrete, renewably sourced timber and recycled elements. The development will also include a micro grid PV system, rainwater harvesting, grey water recycling and water saving storm water management systems.
