Mundingburra Housing | Counterpoint Architecture

Mundingburra Housing is an exemplar regional public housing project that delivers 18 new homes in Townsville. The project responds directly to its specific surrounding context and aims to create opportunities for both individual identity and a sense of community for its residents.

A landscaped communal space is at the heart of the scheme. All homes are linked to this open space both visually and through pedestrian walkways. This space is intended to foster a sense of community and create opportunities for casual interaction between residents.

Building forms and materiality also directly reference precedents found in the surrounding postwar suburban context and splashes of colour have been selectively introduced into the covered outdoor spaces to further reinforce a sense of individual identity for each of the homes, as well as to enliven and further de-institutionalise the overall complex.

This form is now closed.
