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.
Density and Diversity Done Well
Arkhefield and Urbis recently collaborated to submit an entry titled ‘Retrofix’ to the Queensland Government’s Density and Diversity Done Well competition. This future housing study explored how an existing suburban block could be retrofitted to facilitate sharing, enable densification and promote community interaction
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.
Blackwood Street development reinterprets the fabric of the surrounding suburb within a midrise, mixed use, vertical community. As the first four storey building within Blackwood Street, the building is unashamedly bold and consciously sets a precedence for revitalizing a suburban context.
