This large student housing project comprises two five-storey buildings, each housing 300 students arranged around a large sheltered communal space that has a delightful collegiate feel to it.

There has been a significant investment in large solar PV and solar hot water arrays, water recycling and natural ventilation with thermal chimneys, resulting in a 5* Australian Green Star rating. This is a creditable and credible application of modern sustainable design principles on a significant scale in a relatively low cost design and build project.
