DDDW Holland Park
Arkhefield’s commended entry ‘Retrofix’ in the Density and Diversity Done Well design competition was selected by the Queensland Government Architect and the Department of Housing and Public Works to be developed as a demonstration project. The original concept has been adapted to suit a corner suburban site (previously three houses) in Holland Park for a community of twelve one-bedroom units.
Goodna Social Housing
Our brief was to design 12 single bedroom units for residents of social housing for the Department of Housing and Public Works. This was to be achieved by providing rational, cost effective, compact units which are adaptable, robust and capitalise on the site’s elevation and aspect. Units were to meet gold and platinum LHA standards with an emphasis on flexibility and livability.
Designed by Arkhefield, Caggara House for Brisbane Housing Company balances affordability and quality with a high level of interaction and social cohesion for its residents and the community.
Fitzgibbon Core Apartments
Core Apartments is Arkhefield’s third affordable housing development for Brisbane Housing Company and the first mid rise development to be completed in the Urban Land Development Authority’s Fitzgibbon Chase subdivision. As a catalyst development within the higher density designation of the subdivision, the buildings set a benchmark for mass, bulk, scale and quality of neighbouring sites whilst remaining within the tight construction budget.
