[Greyfields Housing Studio]
This studio engaged with the work of the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) and their investigation into new forms of higher density housing in ‘Greyfield’ precincts.
Greyfield precincts in Perth were selected, individual and/or amalgamated sites nominated, and designs undertaken for group housing that aimed to increase density, deliver high level ESD outcomes, test levels of amenity for individuals and groups, explore delivery methods, and generate a high quality of life through outstanding design.
The studio focused on two types of housing: the courtyard and the row house. It explored precedents and contemporary practice in these types.
