Bligh Graham Architect’s entry was based on the project ‘Gaythorne Infill Housing‘. The concept looks at potential ways to avoid the typical model of sub division development in the Brisbane suburbs in order to maintain landscapes, yards and access to passive ventilation all while increasing density by up to 4 times the existing amount. By considering the potential in subdivision and carefully arranging duplexes on the site the development can be more climatically responsive and give potential to flexible and more diverse dwellings. This entry along with the six other winners and one hundred entry’s, shows potential for more considered design based outcomes to medium density densification in Brisbane suburbs.
