nettletontribe worked closely with James Cook University and i4architecture to deliver a design that celebrates Townsville’s tropical climate through its high-quality community landscape, whilst enabling community engagement through public placemaking and ideas market and creating a vibrant and inviting streetscape that attracts students and staff whilst reinforcing the Magnetic Island pedestrian Axis and promoting a strong connection to the land by embedding local Indigenous narratives in design.
The architecture successfully delivers an environment highly connected to its surroundings, celebrating, and promoting Townsville’s unique tropical urban landscape. The functional and aesthetic requirements are efficient, climate-sensitive, and clearly register as high-quality residential development. The positive feedback is a testament to the experience that nettletontribe has from working on a large range of student accommodation projects and universities.
