MBA AWARD TO MATRIX FOR ELLIVO DESIGNED DEFENCE HOUSING…

July 12, 2012

Matrix Projects have been awarded the Master Builders  Individual Home $276,000 – $375,000 Award for the Defence Housing Australia development at O’Connell Place Enoggera, designed by Ellivo Architects.

The MBA Award was for the single-level RB3 design which provided a higher level of amenity than the DHA brief required.

Ellivo Architects also received recognition from DHA and Defence for the O’Connell Place development.

The DHA residences in O’Connell Place is a planned residential community located in a natural bushland setting at Enoggera.  The site is a 1.8 ha tract of land defined by Marist College to the South and the Enoggera Base to the North and West. The development includes 18 lots incorporating 5 house types which expresses the sub-topical  aesthetic of the area.

A combination of single storey detached dwellings and double storey detached or duplex models populate the site. The dwellings have been specifically designed to meet the strict requirements of Defence Housing Australia (DHA) across a range of rental bands (RB3, RB4 and RB5). The house types designed are responsive to orientation, aspect, environmental controls, materials and textures.
