Social Housing Design Guidelines Toolkit - Indicative Floor Plans
The Indicative Floor Plans are a tool developed by Arkhefield for the Queensland Government - Housing Partnerships Office (HPO), Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy to form part of their Social Housing Design Guidelines Toolkit.
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.
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
