Deception Bay Housing

This community based project was the result of a successful funding application by Deception Bay Community Youth Programs Association, recognising a need for accommodation for young people in the Deception Bay area. The project is comprised of 8 units in the form of 4 duplex dwellings.

The design outcome was informed through a number of design workshops with stakeholders, including end-users, which ensured that the design outcome was responsive to the specific needs of young people in the area.

The units are designed to provide for privacy, a high level of security and to promote natural ventilation by catching breezes. Detailing and materials are robust to minimize long-term maintenance requirements.

The project was completed in 2001 at a cost of $1.2M.
