24 villas and apartment-style affordable ccommodation for short-term and long-term tenancy are developed into the challenging site in a remote Shire of Exmouth. Located at the canal’s edge and ideal for family getaways, Cooyou Close offers single-storey, one-bed, and two-bed villas to the west and double-storey, two-bed apartments to the east.

The design concept takes a landscape-focus approach where the accommodation clusters are connected with lush green landscaping with interactive and multi-purpose shared-spaces and amenities. Architecturally, these residences leverage rhythmic yet clearly defined expressions backed by sustainable principles - like cross ventilation, deep overhangs for sun control and water collection systems - to ensure the development synergises with the local harsh climates and landscape. The result is a collection of water-front community-focused buildings and open spaces offering residents clear connections and seamless wayfinding.

 

The project is completed in 2023 and considered a benchmark in a remote Australian towns and affordable housing being designed around the skills of local trades.
