category: small buildings

project name: Kowanyama Community Housing

location: Kowanyama Aboriginal Shire Council

Size: over 40 individual dwellings

completed: Since 2007

With long standing relationships, we have designed & documented a significant number of dwellings for these communities. Most typically the houses are detailed to maximise the opportunity for the role of local workforce, thus creating training, employment and importantly local ownership. Whilst the designs must meet the exactly requirements of the Department codes, most importantly they each fulfil the ambitions of the individual families.

In Kowanyama we also had the opportunity to rehabilitate several derelict houses – lifting and duplexing to return accommodation to the Community for valuable accommodation. The outcomes achieved have indeed been very satisfying for the Myriad team.
