2014 Teaching - NDIS Competition - Student's Work

Top Student Presentations

National Affordable Housing Consortium (NAHC) 'Whole of Life, Whole of Use' Design Competition
Studio Tutors: Rob Brown & Carly Martin
2014 l ARCH 7111 Design Studio 2
UNSW Masters of Architecture Programme Architecture + Design

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a significant initiative that promotes independent living for people with disability. The design competition is intended to link into the NDIS reforms promoting independent living and needs and bring cost-effective design to the market, as both a social housing product and as an affordable market product. The designs evolve around the production of standard residential dwellings that can be bought and sold in the general market. The buildings are flexible and adaptable for people from different disability groups to be able to live independently. 

Students from this studio received first place in both site design categories, also entered by students from The University of Melbourne, Griffith University and Bond University.
