Biscoe Wilson Architects were approached by the Department of Housing to design and document a social housing development consisting of 13 one-bedroom units in Oxley. These units have a variety of accessibility standards (Platinum, Gold and General) as specified by the Social Housing Design Guide and the Liveable Housing Design Guide.
Materials were specified for their durability and low maintenance, while aligning with a particular aesthetic. Significant sun and privacy studies have been utilised to inform screen design and locations.
